Finally come up with a name I really like.... :cool:

Heliamphora 'Patasola'



The Patasola or "one foot" is one of many myths in South American folklore about female monsters from the jungle, appearing to male hunters or loggers in the middle of the wilderness when they think about women. The Patasola appears in the form of a beautiful and seductive woman, often in the likeness of a loved one, who lures a man away from his companions deep into the jungle. There, the Patasola reveals her true, hideous appearance as a one-legged creature with ferocious vampire-like lust for human flesh and blood, attacking and devouring the flesh or sucking the blood of her victims.

Thank you :-0

Description (A work in progress)

This plant was selected for cultivar consideration based on its vigor, rapid growth rate and unique physical characteristics.
It is from a hybrid I created several years ago. It is unique among its siblings in that it is a combination of the best qualities of each.
It will be co-submitted with Jennifer Lei who cultivated this particular seedling to maturity.

Mature pitchers are 25-30cm tall and 5-6cm wide. Under intense lighting the pitcher color will become vinaceous to violet to almost charcoal as the pitcher ages. Pitcher shape is infundibular in the lower part with a pronounced waist approximately half way up. The upper section is infundibular and slightly compressed in older pitchers from front to back. This compression gives the pitcher mouth a kidney or reiniform shape when viewed from above. The exterior surface of the pitcher is pubescent with the interior surface being puberulent to pubescent.

The rim of the pitcher mouth may undulate under some conditions and become revolute as it approaches the base of the nectar spoon. The revolute rim ends abruptly at the nectar spoon with little to no further constriction. The nectar spoon is helmet shaped with the bottom edge diagonally tapering to a point at the apex. It is a copious producer of nectar with droplets sometimes observed.

The inflorescence is pubescent with typical Heliamphora flowers. Productive bracteole nectaries have been observed under favorable conditions

Did you just create your own cultivar? Like, this is the first kind of heli like this?! If so, that is cool.

Beautiful B. Congratulations mate. Glad to see you register a cultivar. You have been an inspiration and a mentor to many of us. Now chop chop...make some new experiments with nepenthes and get me that edwardsiana x macrophylla x villosa hybrid. lol

Nice hybrid. But when i look on google, and search for heliamphora pictures, hundreds look like your, or very close.

I wonder what are the unique morphologic characteristics about your hybrid ? Look like a normal heli looking to me. Great plant of course, but a standard looking heliamphora.

Maybe you wanted to rush your registration because i already have a registered heliamphora cultivar mhmm? :)

Im just curious :)

Thanks mate, its definitely getting there. I actually had a hunch it was parva x sarracenioides but had it labelled as tatei x sarracenioides. From looking through this thread, it is nice to confirm that it is indeed what I suspected. It is definitely very fuzzy on the exterior, it also produces copious amounts of nectar on the spoon, far more so than any heliamphora I have seen. I would be happy to send along a division of it to you, it would probably fair better in your conditions to be honest. I would love to snag a division from the parent sarracenioides if you ever have any spare divisions lying about. :cool:

Guess yours got mislabeled :p
