Nice plant just smaller than expected
Really wanted to give this 5 stars, but I was sort of disappointed at how small it was. When I selected the young adult option for an extra 7 dollars I thought I would get a slightly larger plant with a few mature traps. I am VERY pleased with the number of young traps though don't get me wrong, it's just the two mature looking traps were a little brown near the future spoons as well as a few of the smaller ones... packaging was fantastic as well as the shipping time once it shipped... I'll definitely be a return customer because overall it has been a pleasant experience and I've heard nothing but good things about the flytrap store. I just wish the plant I got had been a little bigger with some color other than green.

Top notch quality
My heliamphora was well packaged and not a single pitcher was broken. The plant was a bit smaller than I was expecting, but it came with 3-4 growth points, so I'm looking forward to separating them when they're larger. I looked around before purchasing and couldn't find a lower price for heliamphora in the USA, and I'm glad that I went with FTS - an unbeatable price coupled with a very healthy plant (and more than one growth point too!). Will definitely order again!

Beyond expectation
My Heliamphora's quality was way better than what I was expecting. I think there's about four to five clusters in the cup.
Will shop from here again!

Cute little guys
I ordered a small plant. I received a pot with five of the cutest little plants you ever saw. They are tiny, but they don't look the least bit stressed. By the second day, they were standing up which made them look a little bigger. This is my first purchase from Fly Trap Store. I will not hesitate to buy from them again.

I have two plants from a different dealer that I am trying to bring back from the brink of death. And three more from local sources that never thrived. It's really nice to get healthy material to work with. These arrived healthy, if I do my part they will flourish.

So many juvenile pitchers!
The heli came in great condition. All the pitchers were green with a bit of red on the inside rim of the pitchers, and was planted in live sphagnum moss. The adult pitcher in the middle is just beautiful, and dont forget about the TONS of juvenile pitchers swarming around it! I can see another adult pitcher growing too. Great pick Leah, and thank you for responding quickly with every question i asked. I love FTS!

Great Plant!
My new Heliamphora minor arrived in great condition, with lots of healthy green pitchers and multiple growth points. It picked up quickly and is doing great! I'm going to keep FlytrapStore in mind when I'm looking for anything else!

The heli I received was more than what I expected it to be! exceptional packaging, very green/ healthy pitchers everything was awesome it was even shipped fast! After un boxing it sprayed it with water and I stared at it for hours! It's truly a beautiful plant that takes my mind into the summits of the Guiana highlands in South America + it's carnivorous!

Typical FTS order - Excellence
I recently ordered one of the potted young Hemliamphora minors, and it arrived within four days of order placement in perfect condition. No leaves were damaged, no potting medium was disrupted, the plant was undamaged by Winter weather and it had many small, healthy pitchers. I was more than satisfied by my newest FTS order, and will continue to count on FTS when looking for new plants. Thanks, Matt and Leah!

This is my first heliamphora ever and I could not be more happy with what I ordered. It looks great and was exceptionally packed. I placed the order Monday night, Tuesday morning they shipped it out and today (thursday) Its sitting right in front of me. I placed an order with Californiacarnivores on Sunday and they haven't even sent me a confirmation of my order yet. You guys have my business!

Great plant, it looked like it didn't had any shock!
The packing was exceptional, the Heli looked like it didn't had any signs of shock. I ordered a young adult heli, and wow, the pitchers were big. H. minor is a pretty compacted small plant, for such beauty with great colors and healthy looking provided by Matt, i give this baby a 5/5!!!!!! (Originally posted June 2, 2011.)
