I'm looking for an easy-to-grow and compact Heliamphora species or hybrid, i.e. heat-tolerant (isn't picky about nighttime temp drops; mine constantly stay in the mid-high 70s during summer) and adapts well to low RH. My budget is about $40 but I can be flexible.

I do also wonder if it would be better to wait until the weather gets cooler to get one? I can imagine being shipped in a dark hot box being pretty stressful for a Heli.

I have an extra division of heliamphora minor burgundy black. its a good size division but it is a very expensive plant. 140$ on redleaf exotics that is the only division I have!

Whew I looked it up and that is a beautiful plant but definitely out of my budget. I'd hate for a plant like that to be my first Heli only for me to kill it :lol: . Thanks for the offer though.

Heliamphoras are kinda addictive :lol: . If you give them high humidity and temps <=80, they're fine. I don't give mine that much light either. Only 3 CFL's and a LED strip, for half the recommended amount of light. No signs of etiolation.

The elegant look is certainly part of their allure. I'd grow more if I had the space. I'm going to receive a H. minor which is one of the more tolerant species in terms of temperature and humidity, right? My indoor RH is usually around 20% give or take some increases during the muggier times of the year like our monsoon season now.
