Does anyone know where I can get a (cheap) Heliamphora? Sarracenia Northwest has a H. heterodoxa x minor
on their website, but the cheapest is $40 for a small plant (in 3 inch pot)

Is that a decent price for Helis? Does anyone know a different source? I don't really care what species/hybrid it is, I just want a beginners plant to expand my collection and get some experience.

Actually, I take that back. Sarracenia Northwest is out of stock.

If your looking for a beginners plant id probably stay away from heliamphora. it's a pretty tough plant to keep alive unless you can give it cool temperatures, lots of sun, and keep the humidity high.
