my only heli :)

by HarrisAz » Wed May 04, 2011 11:27 am

this is a H. x Tequila which is given by John last November when he came to borneo.

This plant had been struggling for a few months since i have been putting it in fullsun,dipping the whole pot in water etc etc.

but when i start moving it under 50%shade and water it just like nepenthes or so for a month or two,it seems to do well.

heres some pics of it.

This plant is growing fairly fast now.Going to apply the fertiliser soon!

thanks again J!
this plant is quite heat tolerant and will grow very well if given dappled shade and mist it once a day during midday.

Gonna apply the fert weekly and will see the effects few weeks come!!


Thanks

Wow! That looks a lot like a Sarra, but you can definetly see the Heliamphora in it!
Good growing!

below is Burnt soil which covered just the roots and actually that time,i have some yellow LSM plus John gave me some as its sticking on the heli's roots so i just throw a bunch of yellow LSM in the pot to fill it up but now it grows back.

Helis seems to do well i burnt soil ,lot of growers here use burnt soil and had good success.

That is so cute! I just want to hug it (I won't, though). Congrats and good luck with it, though I'm sure it'll thrive in your care =].
