Is it normal for some of the heliamphora pitchers to die after planting them? My helis arrived in great condition from overseas but now some of the pitchers are turning yellow/brown and some are shriveling up. I have them in a terrarium.
Yeah i think its pretty normal, just due to stress from shipping, but its still quite depressing :\ With mine the pitchers that were slightly discoloured or had speckles died off in the first 2 weeks or so (its kind of a long death process). Also i found that little sections die but the rest survives, so yeah, expect a few casualties...Heres a series of pictures i took over about a month from when i got them. They arent as nicely coloured now (in my opinion) but there is new growth and they are a pretty bright green colour with bits of red which is good. I plan on giving better lighting some day to restore this colour I did manage to get 2 plants out of 1 though as a bit snapped off when i first got them
