Hello everyone. Will be hosting a giveaway for September 14th. Here are the details
Giveaway package includes

-Heliamphora Heterodoxa x Minor large
https://carnivorousplantresource.com/pr ... ill-clone/

-4 quart bag of my Heliamphora soil mix (2:1:1:1:1 perlite, peat moss, long fiber sphagnum, fir bark, horticultural sand)
Or 1:1:1 Nepenthes soil mix (1:1:1 long fiber sphagnum, fir bark, perlite)

Rules

1. Submit 1-5 pictures of your best Heliamphora specimens and their surrounding environment they inhabit. You must have all the images on the same comment if you are participating.

2. Everyone in the forum can vote on their favorites by liking the images. There is no limit to how many different people's images you like but you cannot vote for yourself.

3. Draws will be resolved by doing another series of votes between the winners that tied. If there is a draw between more than 2 people there may be a redraw by process of elimination (highly doubt based on the odds but just in case people do not change their likes regardless).

International winners must purchase a prepaid shipping label through UPS, FedEx, etc. The reason for this is that I will need to wait for the plants to arrive to my address than purchase an import permit just to get it out of the country. I would recommend international express shipping for living plants from my personal experience. I have sold internationally a few times. I have had packages take a few days to over 2 months to arrive in extreme cases. There are even cases of packages being stuck in port or being cut open by customs

With my best regards, good luck to everyone!

Not the best set up but my heterodoxa x minor is flowering for a second time so I suppose it is happy. The second picture is of my helis that I am acclimating to lower humidity or are in intensive care.

Nice! Mine were always more of a purple red color. It took a while to establish but they grow pitchers rather quickly now.

You want more participation?

Yeah, I'm still around. Haven't said much lately (have been having a hard time) but I suppose I'll throw my hat in the ring.

This is a Heliamphora minor that I've had for 3 years I think? It's grown from an inch-wide cluster of juvenile pitchers to a blooming-size specimen in that time. Shame it had to be divided (space concerns).

Well that’s an easy decision since my “collection” consists of one plant. LOL :lol: My possession of this plant is courtesy of the generosity of our own Hollyhock via one of her fabulous giveaways. :mrgreen: I was interested in trying a heli, but had been hesitant to try as I can’t provide a humid highland environment. She gave me this one for a test drive. I’ve been surprised at how well it’s doing. It has weathered my low winter RH and warm to hot summer temperatures. (My winter RH is typically about 15%, and although it sits in the terr, I doubt the RH is much higher in there since the terr is left uncovered. During the summer, the AC vent and door to the room are left closed … although I do leave the window open… since my snake and a number of intermediate to lowland growing plants also inhabit that room. Summer temps can easily be in the 80s or 90s in there.) Not only has it survived, but it has even put out a number of baby pitchers this summer.

Being an apt dweller, I hear that. Although, due to space constraints, I tend to do the opposite…letting pots get overcrowded instead of dividing because I lack the real estate additional pots would require.

Oh - I divided since I have multiple grow chambers, but not much room left in the one the H. minor is in. So I divided to split them into different spaces. Plant Tetris.

I do love me some heli’s! I grow them all in the same conditions 65% RH, 75-65F, 12 hour photoperiod grown in an old fish tank. My biggest and best specimen as of currently is my H. Minor (top left). I actually received this plant in a giveaway not too long ago! Then there is the Sarracenioides (far right top/bottom). It hasn’t grown all that much but boy has it divided. I think may trade off a couple soon actually. The one in the bottom middle is (so. Venamo x Minor v. Pilosa)x ionasi ‘red giant’ I’m hopping it’ll throw out some adult pitchers soon. The rest are heterodoxa x minor and Nutans.

Congratulations @Panman
Pm me your shipping address and whether you want a gallon bag of soil mix or not.

Done. It cost me $200 more because I had to buy a different specimen. Wouldn't let me buy the minor x Nutans even though it says in stock it says 0 available when I go to check out. So I bought you 2 medium heliamphora tatei x Minor instead. $360 order so return the favor however you want with some plants or s something.
