Heliamphora Tatei (Duida) x (Arenicola x Ionasi) Clone F

by ironjaws » Tue Nov 15, 2016 10:18 pm

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!!!

Here is what this beauty looked like unpacked.

Here she is potted up.

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!!

You can't go wrong getting Heli's from Tim (Sumpfkrug) -a good portion of my collection has come from him and all have done extremely well.

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

It's always a huge **relief** when new Heliamphora growth pushes up after being a new arrival. That alone says something about your growing ability ;)

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.

Nice plant. It's all down hill once you get a few with success.
