H. nutans is a great one to start out with. H. heterodoxa and H. minor are also good.

If you're into juvenile pitcher, H. Peter Pan seems cool. That is if you want the novelty of having a flowering juvenile plant.

I read that Heliamphora hispida grows at really high elevations, does it require colder temperatures due to this or can it handle temperatures suitable for regular elevation Heliamphora? Sorry for asking so many questions, I'm new to Heliamphora

I suggest you get a minor, @sanguinearocks101. They're fast growers, cute, and stay compact (so you can fit em in a dome). They also look very handsome in the clusters that they form, which Nutans and Chimatiensis would take a while to do.

Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionassii seems very promising as a vigorous grower. Some people are able to acclimate it to their windowsill (of course, it'll have to be an extremely slow process by poking a hole in the bag per week)

Thank you :D ! People said it can handle 35 degrees celsius(95 degrees fahrenheit) so it will do good for me.

it depends, maybe 1-2 growing seasons sometimes if you order from wistuba they might give you a mature one too

As the host, the plants will be delivered to my house and will be distributed accordingly. please note that since I will be shipping the plants to your house, I will add a second shipping fee with the cost depending on the size of plants ordered and weight. also, I cannot be held responsible for any damage to the plants during shipping. that will be between you and wistuba. however, If the plant is very unhealthy upon arrival, I believe that you may send a picture to the nursery and and you will be refunded.
