    how hot? What are your growing conditions? Day Night temperatures. Light and humidity levels?

    While H. minor is more tolerant to WARM temperatures it is still a highland plant prefering cool nights very bright light and high humidity.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I grow mine in lowland conditions but perhaps a bit brighter and it is fine. but giving some air movement would help...

    I have found that nightime drops in temperature of 5-10 degrees is fairly essential with this genus. Although they can take warm (or even hot) conditions during the day, they really need that night time refresher of cool humidity.

    H. minor is a personal favorite. Good luck with your new adventure!

    I am going to show my ignorance here..."What , AGAIN Joe!??"

    I see you are from New Zealand. Aren't your temps pretty mild anyway, or am I wrong on that?
    I think you would be able to grow this pretty successfully. Heliamphora grow really well in 2:1 perlite/peat, but you could use your local sphagnum moss too. They like it wet with drainage, though I have seen them grown well sitting in water. Probably the cp that responds best to fertilization, from what I hear. Never done it myself.

    Regards,

    Joe

    I am currently growing a moinor x heterodexa, that I got from Pryo, and it is receiving days of around 80F*, down to about 60-65F* at night with 50%-about 70or 75% at all times, with a good air flow.

    Be careful with the standing of them in a water tray. The roots do not want to be compacted or submerged in any way: they need oxygen about them, so too sodden a mix using LFS is not good. Keep the pitchers filled.
