Cancel. I was able to locate one.

And I am back looking for a Heli again. :evil: :evil:
I found one at Black Jungle Terrarium but what they sent was closer to a seedling than a "Small to Medium plant" as they advertised. If I could send this puny thing back for a refund I would. Almost $17.00 for ground shipping when it could have gone USPS Priority Mail for $10.00. To top it off, no replies to emails. Half tempted to dispute the charge. Why am I having such a tough time getting a Heliamphora. Maybe I should just hold off until spring time but I really wanted one before winter sets in.

Just to put it out there, I am also interested in purchasing Drosera so if anyone has an abundance they would like to thin out let me know.

Found me a nice Heli for under $60.00 shipped. I just find it so frustrating when a seller advertised something and post pics that are not near what the plant is and say "pic depicts a representation of what plant will look like" instead of showing a pic of something close to what you will receive. However, when it is a Retail Store that does this I tend to get absolutely furious about it. Case in point, I paid almos $40.00 for the tiny green thing in pic shipped. Compare that to the beutiful red and green plant that cost me $58.75 shipped. Black Jungle Exotics tried saying I purchased a small plant. That is not a small plant, it's more like a seedling. I told them no, I purchased what you described as a juvenile plant similar to what your picture showed. So I ask, was it worth spending the extra $20.00 and not having to wait 3 plus years for it to get to the larger size?

I bought mine on the FB groups, larger healthier plant for $40. You get better plants/prices from other enthusiasts many times.
