How hot does it get in your greenhouse? H. minor is a pretty tough species of Heliamphora, but they still don't deal with excessive heat all that well.

You have to be an experience grower to grow them man.

30°C should be fine for a Heliamphora. How cool does it get at night and what's the average relative humidity? They enjoy cool nights and high humidity as well.

That might not be cool enough at night. I think they do better with temps down into the 60s°F (15°C to 20°C). I'm only going on what I've read. I've not grown them long enough to say for sure.

I grow Helis in my greenhouse - the temp during the day can reach over 40c and at night down to 15c during Summer. It's important to keep them cool and at the same time give lots of bright light. The floor is a better place for heliamphora as it is cooler than on the bench, it is also more humid because there is dampness coming from the gravel on the floor. If you have an airconditioner you can put your plant close to the outlet to keep it cooler.

As long as there is a big drop of temperature at night, Helis should be fine. And they are actually called Marsh Pitchers.
