    hey, i receive the 2 heliamphoras heterodoxas x minor for 7 dollers a week or 2 ago, and 1 of em is doin good but the other it looks like it was 2 seedlings in 1 pot

    and 1 seedling looks dead and the other one is just growing a small green one

    i have them in like 5-6 hours morning full sun and the temps are around 79-86

    should i give them MORE sun?? i know they like cool soil temps so, i think ill put ice cubes on the top oof soil mroe often, and what are the chances it will live?should i give it MORE sun?? i looked at Martins post in the other thread that 1-2 drops in each pitcher of milk is good for em, but there pitchers are very small,

    also do these things grow fast or slow?

    THanks

    ahh forgot to add,

    they stay about 60% humidity -100%

    60% or higher during day. mostly all the time its 90-100% at night

    they sit in the little tray with water, but i dont fill it up, i water from the top so it goes throughly to the botom

    Hum mine don't get 15 hours of direct sunlight and they still grow fine. I think the pots are getting to cool. The pots have a very small mass so the ice cubes work very effectively. I would stop using them for now and switch to cool water. Don't give them more sun right now let them grow in were ever you've placed them right now. If after a couple of months they look dark green and have no red on them give them more light. They are kind of slow growers, but you should always see a small pitcher forming if there in the right conditions for long enough.

    Yeah they like the soil cool but don't let the ice cubes touch the plants. Just try refirgerated water.
