Seller description 
  • Tall, handsome plants that grow slowly and require patience but are quite striking when mature and provide vertical interest in the collection. Worth the wait!
  • Originally collected in 1953-1954 during the initial exploration of the Neblina Massif on the border of Brazil and Venezuela, this species was named in 1978 after the area. Though populations can be found there at elevations of 2000-2200m, it was later discovered to be much more wide spread on neighboring Cerro Avispa and Cerro Aracamuri, where it is the only Heliamphora present and it can grow as low as 860m (the lowest occurring Heliamphora so far discovered). The plants favor shrubby, heavily vegetated habitat, and partial light
  • To add to the uniqueness of the species, H. neblinae has the longest pitchers known in the genus, and though the majority are 35-45cm, they can reach 50-60cm! In addition, stems are produced occasionally, typically no more than 30cm, but- in at least one exceptional case- a herbarium specimen is recorded having a stem 2m tall! Pitchers are uniformly light green with a contrasting smooth vibrant red stripe running down the back of the interior, with a matching red marginal line on the outside. The red spoons arise from this area seemingly as a continuation of the stripe. Their shape can be variable but is generally flat with wavy margins, and upright. Pitchers are low-waisted, and have a drainage hole. Only a few live pitchers are held on the plant at a time, often surrounded by several dead ones
  • Heliamphora neblinae is better suited for experienced growers due to its slow growth rate and tendency to take a while before displaying its distinctive morphology. This said, it is a rewarding species to grow, and the end result can be quite spectacular!

  • Just a quick heads-up: since plants are natural products, you might notice some slight variations when unboxing your plants
  • We do our best to make sure the plants you receive look like the ones in the photos, but keep in mind that seasons change and plants grow. Some leaves might fall off, new ones might sprout, and the plants may look a bit different over time
  • 99% of what we sell are one-of-a-kind collector items, so you will receive the exact plant pictured. The labels are spot on, so even if the plant looks a bit different, we 100% guarantee it's the real deal. Also, all the photos you see are of our own plants unless we mention otherwise. We update images occasionally to keep things fresh. If you want to see updated pictures before you buy, just let us know – we're happy to help!
