Hey everyone!

I hate to be a bother, but I am placing an order with AW soon. It will be only heli's (I may however decide to purchase N. inermis along with it). I know that many have been very successful with his plants, and he has a much greater variety available than here in the U.S.


Here's the list!

H. chimantensis (Chimanta Tepui)
H. folliculata (Kamakawarai Tepui)
H. hispida (Cerro Neblina)
H. elongata (Ilu Tepui)
H. pulchella (Amuri Tepui)
H. heterodoxa (Gran Sabana)
H. minor (Auyan Tepui)


Couple questions though, of course! I'm starting to get a handle on things, but I still have a lot to learn (doing so mainly by watching the posts of the CP royalty on this forum! :Laie_71mini: ).


If I order soon, when should I expect the plants to arrive? (I'm thinking May...?) I am going with overnight shipping.

Are there any tips you could give me that may help these plants settle in (other than the typical acclimation procedures)? I'm expecting small juveniles as far as size... is this true? I could not find any size information on Mr. Wistuba's website.


My undying thanks to all of you who made it to the bottom of this post! :thumbsup:

Chance

(Edit; Updated the list... this is what I actually ordered.)

i did an order of 4 heliamphora a few months ago. of the 4, only one was a juvenile plant (ciliata), the other 3 were from adult divisions, although one is currently in a transitional phase, switching out from adult to juvenile leaves.

as for tips: http://terraforums.c...ad.php?t=128505

That's what I heard from them as well. We're probably in the same shipment!

Let me know how it goes when it does arrive :)

Great! Looks like you will have some fun with them! :yes:

Mine haven't arrived yet, but it'll probably take mine a little while longer to arrive (considering where I live!). But hey, congrats!

Many thanks,

Chance

I was just looking at Wistuba's website, surprised I hadn't noticed them before. I have a massive CP bookmark section in my browser. They seem to have a brilliant selection of plants. I like the way that they only specialise in certain genera but excel at the number of species. I also like their prices and delivery rate. Oh and the ant plants look COOL.
