I got my Helis today :)
I was worried that the snow we got could have delayed the mail but they arrived. I have not unwrapped them yet b/c I am still setting up my new terrarium. I will take pictures today or tomorrow.
Thanks for the comments.

Hi everyone,
I know that the small Helis don't look like much now but in a few months you'll see how awesome they really are.
As you can tell by my new terrarium, I got the idea of using an egg crate from Matt. Thank you Matt :-)

Haha, don't be sorry for me being jealous. Thanks for posting the pics.

I hope to have a H. Minor or some cross some day. I just need to figure out where and how I would grow it in my current place of dwelling. I just love how open and symetric the H. Minor pitchers get.

Are your plants in pots or planted directly in to the tank? What kind of cover do you have on the tank?
The air pump that I have in there helps keep the humidity high. You can buy one at Walmart.


I have them potted separately using a towel on top as the lid, I've found that it keeps the temps in the low 80's in the tank throughout the daytime. Do you use your air pump as a fogger?

I have a zoo med fogger. I also have a whisper air pump.
The 1/4'' glass cover helps with keeping the humidity high and keeps the temp. from going up to high

If anyone needs help with caring for your Helis, I would be more then happy to answer any questions/concerns you might have about them.
Although I am not an expert(yet lol), I am getting pretty good at caring for them. ;)
