SUNPITCHER: Heliamphora Heterodoxa x Minor
** ** Collectors Item - RARE and Sought after ** **
** Limited quantity available **
As a native to the moutaintops of Venezuela, Heliamphora thrives in bright artificial to partial sunlight and mild daytime temperatures (18°C to 25°C). We recommend growing these under strong fluorescent lights with stable conditions or at the very least - bright light on a windowsill. This will help your plant grow those beautiful spoons that ornate their pitchers. Overall, Heliamphora is a hardy plant, though it grows very, very slowly, which probably contributes to its mystique. If you're a patient experienced grower, you will certainly enjoy growing a heliamphora. We highly recommend doing some research on the specific needs of heliamphora prior to ordering - these are well established rooted divisions from near flowering mature plants
Specific notes on the H. Heterodoxa x Minor hybrid
Though Heliamphora is generally regarded as a plant for the experienced grower, this hybrid is the easiest grower of the bunch. Adult specimens will produce pitchers 10-20cm tall. The pitchers have a distinct flare with a red margin and reddish hue in the upper interior. Cool water and bright light (while still managing cool to mild temperatures) are the main factors in growing them successfully

- Sent via courier:
- Shipping is not recommended as these plants are quite fragile, however, should this be the preferred method, your plant will be sent already potted - Packed and protected to minimise damage
- Upon receiving, unpack your plant carefully and choose a growing area with bright light. Top water your plant, with a small film of water in a tray, never let your plant dry out. Frequent cool water misting will be beneficial to your plant's growth

This plant takes my collection of carnivorous plants to a new level. Cultivo Carnivores has once again delivered a very healthy and very rare plant at a great price. Will be back for more.
Amazing healthy little plant 😁😊 can't wait for it to start growing 😊
Fantastic plant - very healthy and arrived in great condition. The experience and care that Therese has for these plants is evident in every aspect of the order, and especially in the meticulous packaging and after-care service.
We are so happy with the service we received from Cutlivo. The owner is so knowledgable and went out of her way more than once to accommodate us. We knew exactly what to expect and ended up buying 2 healthy and strong plants. Absolutely the best online store in South Africa. My wife and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these guys a hundred times over. Keep up the good work. Thank you so much Teresa
