Here another h.minor var pilosa, very different. This one is also from auyan, but the nectar spoon is more elongated.
Strange fact on this clone; the nectar spoon stay yellowish even under massive lighting.

Heliamphora 'red mambo'
(the first pitcher under my care)
Look quite elegant :)


And my dream come true: my h.minor var pilosa clone A push me a flower.


Of course i will make pure pilosa seeds(x self) but i think i will pollinate the first flower with some pulchella or parva pollen. I think the cross can be interesting.

As always, thanks for looking. !

Thx guys ! :)

Thx for your compliments also. H.minor var pilosa seeds will be gold nuggets. I pollinated many species over the last few years, but nothing rewarding like h.minor var pilosa seeds! Im in heli heaven :)

I just cant find any pictures or any information on internet about flowering pilosa. I just cant believe im the first one. Wistuba make them flower for sure..

Anyway, i will add so many pictures of the whole pilosa story, internet will be well documented from now :)

I will keep some seeds for you varun, for sure. With all the growing tips you gave to me, you deserve it !

I sow 1 seed for testing purpose, and i got a germination 4 days later.

For those who bought my h.minor var minor auyan seeds, i think you can trust the freshness :)


Heliamphora minor var pilosa seeds are around the corner, be ready :)
