I couldn't help myself after seeing Sumpfkrug's post about his Heli's, and got myself a beauty! Heliamphora Tatei (Duida) x (Arenicola x Ionasi) Clone F. I received it on November 9, 2016.

The communication was excellent and the packaging stellar!!!

As can be expected, shipping does take a bit of a toll and there was one adult pitcher that was bent. I had to prop it up onto a nearby juvie pitcher.

However, that very pitcher perked right up the very next morning!! A result I firmly believe to be due to such exceptional cultivation prior to me receiving it.

Here we are in our new home.

I filled the two adult pitchers with water and made sure the media had plenty of water as well. Took a close up of one of the beautiful adult pitchers!!! Ooh la la!!

Excellent! I truly believe that the chances of cultivating a plant successfully depends on the stellar cultivation from the seller!

Thank you so much! I decided to expand my Heli collection a bit seeing as how my Heli minor put up an adult pitcher. Now I'm that much more confident in my Heli growing abilities.
