This is part of my larger project to renovate my grow shelf once I move into my new apartment in a few weeks. I've been wanting to put together a highland terrarium for awhile now. With the Wistuba group order at flytrapcare forums coming up and me being worried about the few highland plants...
As requested here's a couple of pics of my setup for my lone Heliamphora, a heterodoxa x minor. I keep it outside to take advantage of the sun, and to keep it cool in our steamy summer temps I float it in a 180 gal aquarium I use as a water garden. Water temps generally run in the high 70s/low...
I've had this particular Heliamphora for 3-7 years, but during one or more re-pottings (and a head spinning schedule of full time work/full time school for vet tech and, at 50, "due to the old age" as one of my girlfriend's Italian friend is want to say) I've lost track of what it is...
What up? Ive grown H. heterodoxa x minor for a while but really never got into helis because of their special needs. Recently someone offered me lts of divs so I said why not. I put them in a wine chiller with temps ranging from 50-67F and RH at 70%+ at all times. I'm growing them under a 36w...
Apparently I never started a thread for these guys, but with 4 different kinds now it's probably time
A new arrival, came as one plant that I managed to separate into 2, but they're both loaded with growth points: H. heterodoxa x nutans

I thought I would share my small (but growing) heli collection...
Currently I have the following helis:
H. heterodoxa x ionasii
My setup is a 45 gallon terrarium (36"x12"x24") with two 39W T5HOs and reflective foam insulation on three sides...
Well, I've had this guy (Heliamphora heterodoxa) for a months now and nothing happened. As expected since it was sitting on a windowsill.
I finally decided to build a terrarium and it's only the third day and I noticed just now there is new growth!! I sorta screeched and started jumping with...
It's not so much that I'm bored with the other members of Sarraceniaceae. It's more like a Pokémon-ish desire to "catchem all." As such, behold my first Heliamphora. At this early point I have

A few days ago bought two Heliamphoras heterodoxa X minor, for the day I have them in a tray with water and I leave the night without water (to prevent sudden death syndrome). I usually spray them with distilled water several times a day (the plants are still acclimating). The weather where I...
I am finalizing my "getting out of the inside CP collection business". I had traded/sold off a bunch of helis, neps, and cephs last year after doing a division to two. I held onto a few small stragglers to grow them out a bit before moving them on. I haven't been tending the humidity on my...
I have limited space for carnivorous plants, but for those who are interested, this is my list. I kind of like my plants bloody, red, and dangerous looking. I also have regular house plants, but I'm definitely not listing those as there are too many.
Pink is quantity for trade/sell. Green is...

I have 200 species of orchids, including 18 species of jewel orchids. Also ant plants and ferns, Dischidias, Hoyas, Begonias, Peperomias, and Gesneriads. If I don't have anything you want also willing to buy. Looking for species I don't already have, my current grow list is below.
I'm looking for any mature divisions of Heliamphora that are not heterodoxa x minor, these are not for me but would prefer ones different from the ones on my grow list in case I do want to get a division back from them later (they would be going to a botanical garden)
