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.

USPS sent package to wrong post office for delivery, but not far away so I was able to pick it up.
All 3 plants were in good condition and appear to have started growing. However, the inside of the H. Heterodoxa x minor pitchers appear white. Is this normal?


Very great specimen! Bigger than expected

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.


So excited to watch this grow!! Thank you 🙏
