Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor


Easy to Grow: Moderate to Challenging
Dormancy: No
Native Range: The Tepuis of Northeastern South America
Zones: 11-12

Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor is vigorous growing, medium height, with yellow-green urn-shaped pitchers and large vibrant red helmet nectar spoons. The hip-shaped traps have a distinctive bright red edge, midrib and ala (wing), with a v-shaped slit in the trap opening. They are slightly sweet in fragrance. H. heterodoxa divides regularly and forms nice colonies. The scent-less bell-shaped flowers are yellow, green and white. They bloom anytime during the year. In cultivation, these plant do well in a terrarium in an air-conditioned room with bright light. Fluorescent or LED plant lights with timers on 14 hours/day are recommended. Individuals often show nice red coloration on the inside and outside with red nectar spoons. These are relatively easy to grow, and tolerate a wider range of conditions than some pure species of Heliamphora.

Height: 4"-10"
Plant Type: Tropical, Highland

It’s so beautiful

I bought this kind of plant from different vendors before so i never expected much from this seller, but I was completely wrong! It came in a very well packaged box and had no damage— perfect for my Orchidbox! Will buy another one sooner after i get a bigger space.

Very Healthy

The plant was beautiful. I am very anxious to see a mature plant. I am using a cool mist humidifier with it so hopefully it will somewhat mimic its natural growing condition.

Growing new mature pitchers quicker than normal

I did not expect them to be fast growers but is it normal for them to go from having juvenile pitchers to juvenile pitchers at mature height? Some of them are growing like crazy with the other ones relatively consistent. Only two are dead and dried but they were already dead the first week anyways.

Gorgeous Heli

Just got my Heliamphora and it looks beautiful and healthy. Another excellent specimen from Carnivorous Plant Nursery. Very happy with my purchase.

Excellent specimen!

Got it at the MACPS auction as mid-flower. It all of a sudden decided throw out another flower and 6 more growth points after dividing it a little!
