    O.K, I suppose I should put in an update, so here goes:

    They have been reacting very nicely to my windowsill.
    After this morning, I noticed that they have gained more colour than yesterdy. I have flushed them both with cool water this morning.

    But, this afternoon, just 10 minutes ago, I managed(somehow) to knock over Heliamphora nutans.
    It took around a 3 foot tumble. It is still well and intact, but, it has lost 2 of its pitchers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] One of them was brown at the top anyway, but the other one was big and perfectly formed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] Fortunatley, the biggest and best pitcher is still intact. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Will my H.nutans recover?

    There were no accident with the other Heliamphora.

    I have sprayed them 3 times today, I will spray them 1 or 2 more times today.

    Hi,

    I'm growing two of my Heliamphora on my east-facing windowsill without protection due to the limited space in my terrarium. My clones of H. heterodoxa and H. heterodoxa x nutans grow well but H. minor and H. nutans disliked this environment. Actually I'm not able to get Nepenthes growing in the same place. I had a N. miranda (or something similar) few years back at the same spot and it didn't pitcher at all. During winter I move these two Heliamphora to an unheated room, because I'm afraid the dry hot air would dehydrate them. The pitchers are filled with water about twice a week and temperatures during night drop considerably to 15-18 deg at the moment (open window).

    Ah, and a picture of the H. heterodoxa won't hurt:

    i find it very hard to believe that your plants got noticeably more colorful within a day and you've had it for such a short amount of time theres no way to know how it's reacting.

    if i put an N. rajah or some other delicate plant on my window, it would probably look fine the next day but that doesn't mean that it is fine.

    Here are some pics of mine. Please excuse the quality, since I had to use flash due to low light levels.

    H. heterodoxa right after I bought and transplanted it:


    Right now (taken about 5 minutes ago):

    That pitcher in the center is the newest fully developed one. You can also see two new pitchers forming if you look carefully. The brown stuff is just old pitchers that I have not yet removed. It seems to not have as much red coloring now, but I guess this just means that it has somewhat less light than it did in the nursery.

    As for the damage to the H. nutans, I would imagine it should recover fine if cared for properly. This plant may be harder to grow on a windowsill than H. heterodoxa, so please tell me how it goes. If you can get it to work, maybe I'll get some more Heliamphora!

    I may sound a bit repetitive, but hopefully it is for the best.

    Heliamphoras love higher humidity levels than Nepenthes. Growing the outside or in a windowsill may not be the best decision. Glasshouses or any room which can keep high humidity levels are best.

    On hot days, watch out, because they can die on you very quickly if left outside.

    Red face

    An update:

    Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor:
    Doing very, very well. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Its pitchers are turning deep red inside. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] The nectar spoon has also turned deep red. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Heliamphora nutans:
    Not so good. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] It fell off the desk(remember that?)
    While I was in London, mom forgot to flush them daily with water, she was putting water in the trays instead!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_o_32.gif[/img]
    H.nutans didnt like water being put in its tray, so it has deteriorated. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] All the pitchers that got damaged before I got it(it was i a transport van, as a result it orriginally arrived with damaged pitchers, except for just one) The pitcher which isnt damaged at all is still there, but all the others(they are all damaged) are dying off. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] My nutans will only have 1 pitcher left. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] I have checked the roots, and they are very healthy and firm.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Damaged pitchers on H.heterodoxa x minor are also dieying away, as with H.nutans. Only the pitchers which are not damaged are still there. Mom was also putting water in H.heterodoxa x minors tray, but it didnt react badly to this.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Any advice appreciated,
    Dino [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
