please feel free to share pics of your own. :)

here's mine. i received this plant not too long ago. less than two weeks, and it's already in the process of living up to its name!

although i will admit...this plant was put on the back burner of my mind for a while and when i saw it i was shocked. at first i even thought the plant was dying or some horrible fungus took over. upon closer inspection, the leaves were healthy with no signs of desiccation or bruising.

OK - this picture is of course taken on Ptari - now that this species is new described, I edited my field trip report of 2009.
Some more pics here:

beautiful in-situ plants. must have quite a sight to see! im pretty jealous, but happy you took some nice pictures so I can see them too!
that purpurescens looks quite interesting---almost looks like there's some sarracenioides introgression going on there.

I used to think so too... But I was under the impression H. heterodoxa had mixed with H. s. to produce the intermediate looking plants.

However, now I'm simply believe there isn't any H. h. on Ptari. And still room, somehow, for two species of Heliamphora.

yes very nice photo!! But I have a little doubt because I possess a Heliamphora still young for me but that looks like yours in photography ... For me it would be a hybrid between h.sarracenoides and h. pupurescens

Here are some photographs to see me plant in cultivation but remains to be seen once great ...
