SUNPITCHER: Heliamphora Heterodoxa x Minor

  • R350.00 ZAR


** ** 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

    • 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
