    Hi,

    I have 1 sunpitcher, h. heteradoxa. Its small with juvenile pitchers only. Anyway, now its in a terrarium with good temps, but its over a foot from the lights. (2 compact flourescents). Is this ok? It also gets some (little) indirect sun during the day. anyone who grows heteradoxa have any tips?

    What are your temps? It should be fine with the lighting. Just don't let the pot get overheated. Mine is about a foot from the grow-lights, and is starting to color nicely(Iv'e only had in there for a few days). The temps during the day are at it higest in the lower 80sF and lowest in the 70sF. At night the temps get down to about 60-64F. The are on for about 12hrs. in the winter and will be geting about 16 hrs. in the summer.

    I've got a juvenile heli heterodoxa x minor growing in the 60's. Its doing fine, it enjoys the cool temps so I think your plant will do well. I grow it with my orchids.

    That sounds good. They like day temps to be between 60 and 80 with the extreme of 90, and night temps 45 and 60 with extreme low of 35. They also like high humidity and good air ciculation. Mine is also quite small but I will stil put a pic of it. Iv'e had it a while but it has not had a chance to do well as I was not giving it the best of conditions until I put it into my terr.

    Oh, and they don't like to be sitting in water all the time. They also like cool overhead watering instead of being watered in the tray.

    Properly illuminated, Heliamphora should have some red coloration at the tips of the leaves.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
