I've recently bought a heliamphora minor x nutans, just wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to best provide things like the humidity it needs and how best to look after it.

Cheers in advance

Heliamphora loves as many light as it can get,

Yeah I've been leaving it in the sun with half a plastic bottle over it as an improvised propagator.

helis appreciate 3 things:
1) very bright light.
2) high humidity.
3) cool temperatures (23C during the day is ideal)

-ventilation is also beneficial but not as important as the previously mentioned.

Sounds like a plan for a solar oven - not the optimum setup ...

Well the bottle wasn't on it constantly it was there for a bit each day to help keep humidity up, but I've totally stopped using it since that last post
