  1. Heliamphora nutans - adaptation

    Thank you for the comment But I don't think that the bag method is the best in this case, because at full sun the bag would be very hot. But like heterodoxa hot is not a problem with nutans i guess? Thanks
  2. Hi everyone I have some questions I'm thinking in buying an H. nutans, but the plant it's used to terrarium and I pretend to put it as windowsill plant. I have an H. heterodoxa as windowsill and it's very healthy and big, grows vigorously. I want to know the steps to adapt a Helliamphora used to terrarium, so high humidity, to a windowsil with not much humidity... Thanks :)

  4. Hi everybody I'm thinking in buying some plants in this website: http://carnivorousplantsgarden.com/ What do you think about the site? Has anyone bought there? If yes, the plants arrived well and were healthy? Thank you
  5. Heliamphora heterodoxa

    Thanks for the comment I didn't know that helli pitchers are brittle. The helliamphora that I order is in an window too, so humidty not so high, and the mix that the cultivator uses is perlite and peat... He send me the plant with the soil so I don't have to worry about the substracte... But I also haveSphagnum moss, so I will put a little in the plant to. About the watering what do you suggest? Thanks
  6. Heliamphora heterodoxa

    Hi everyone, I'm thinking in buying an H. heterodoxa, is my first helli... I found an window that is around 17ºC now in the winter, and in the summer rarely passes 25ºC. This window receives some hours of direct sun in the afternon, and in the morning indirect sun. I did, for use as soil, a mixture of perlite, sphagnum moss, peat and volcanic rock (1/1/1/1) What do you think? What are your tips for the substrate? Some advice if the plant starts to look bad, what to do? Thnanks
  7. WOWWW! I have purchased a GIANT darlingtonia!

    Lol I bought one in carnivoria.eu too and she also died :/
  8. Heliamphora - light

    Thanks, I think that grow it in my outdoor will be bad :/ My temperatures here in my garden in summer reach to 30 or more degrees... But the it's full sun the most part of the day! I will try if she didn´t like, I put her in my terrarium, but i don´t have enough light in the terrarium to :/
  9. Heliamphora - light

    Hi everybody! I'm thinking in getting my first heliamphora, maybe H. heterodoxa x minor... The conditions that I found for it are great...It's a window that at the day doesn't exceed 26 degrees, and at night drops to 10 (or less)-17 degrees... The humidity in the day is around 70% at night 80/90%... The bad thing is the light, this windows just receives 3-4 hours of full sun, the rest of the day is just indirect sun... This is enough light for a helli? Thanks ;)
  10. Nepenthes ampullaria 'Brunei Red' x 'Harlequin'

    Thank you for the comments! Yes I think the same, it's very cheap, mine comes with 30 cm of diameter so a little big, maybe more chances of survive, in the spring i'm thinking in getting lowii? It's the oposite of the ampullaria I know lol... But I also have a part of the house that is warm at the day, but at night it's very cold, it's in a window to... What's your advices about the lowii? It grows well? Thanks
  11. Nepenthes ampullaria 'Brunei Red' x 'Harlequin'

    One question, if you think that ampularia is a little difficult, so what's the best lowland to start with? Thanks ;)
  12. Nepenthes ampullaria 'Brunei Red' x 'Harlequin'

    OK, thanks for the comment, the ampullaria that I order is one that is adapted to windowsill conditions... Down to 13ºC rarely this happen... It's like a greenhouse the place that I'm thinking in put her... But if she starts to do bad in the place, I put her in my terrarium... Thanks ;)

  14. Hi everybody I'm thinking in buying an n. ampullaria, is going to be my first lowland, I want to try cultivating lows in my house ahah I read a lot about them and after making some tests in the place I want to put her I have some questions. I'm thinking in put her near a window around some plants, the humidity in this place is about 70-80%, the temperatures now in the winter can go up to 24ºC during the day, and in the coldest nights never lower than 13ºC... What do you think? Any advise? Thanks ;)
