    You can treat this hybrid as an intermediate plant, ie. grown in an intermediate nepenthes set-up.

    I wish i could tell you... i got one in January, and it's gotten progressively smaller since then [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] There are more pitchers now, but they're all tiny. It doesn't seem to like any of the conditions i've had it in so far.

    Am i right in assuming these things need as much light as possible? I heard that and have it just a few inches from my lights, but it doesn't seem to like it very much.

    I have a H. heterodoxa x nutans. The plant is slow growing. When I first got it the cover I had on it fell of while at work and I thought it had died. I kept it under the lights and watered it as needed. It came back a few weeks later.

    I currently grow mine in my basement. The temps are between 60-65F and sometimes a bit warmer. The plant is 5 inches from the bottom of my grow lights. It sits under 2 - 40 watt flourescent bulbs ( mix of cool and growlux ). It seems to be doing well.

    Humidity must be high. I mist mine from time to time, but it is under a cover that keeps the humidity very high. I am using the tray method with mine. Only adding more water when the saucer dries out. I do not llet the compost dry out as this will kill the plant.

    Hope this helps.

    Below you will find a pict of the biggest pitcher at 2 inches +/-.

    Thanks Nick. I imagine mine gets too hot during the day. I haven't a basement, unfortunately. I hope to set up a highland tank after moving to a new apartment.

    You can probably grow heliamphora at a somewhat higher temperature if you water the plant daily or possibly two times a day with cool water. Similar to Darlingtionia californica waterings buy sprinkling the plants overhead to cool them and allowing the water to run through the pot to cool the roots.
