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.

Plants are shipped bare-root, wrapped in damp sphagnum moss. Photographs are representative of species, and not the specific plant shipped.

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