  1. Any recommendations/suggestions? I attach a bit of close-up.
  2. Hi all! I will be very thankful for identifying and recommending treatment for my Nepenthes - I suppose it is a kind of fungus. Yellow spots appear on the leaves which later turn almost completely yellow and then brown, being quickly destroyed. What fungicide (or different treatment) do you think will be best suited? Thanks a lot in advance!
  3. I agree with François, too. Nice plant and nice photos.
  4. Really nice terrarium, Ben What kind of lights do you use? Best regards Juliusz
  5. I once almost lost a specimen of H. folliculata due to overwater. It looked like a dead, so I left it outside of a terrarium and after that I completely forgot about it. It has been staying alone for over 2 months without watering or something else, but after then a new shoot appeared, giving an amazing sign of still living plant! Heliamphora sometimes can be an unbelieveably hardy genus. So if a part of rhizome is alive, it is still a chance. However, it might take a very long time.
  6. When I was keeping my heliamphoras in these conditions (humidity about 70%) they lost many leaves. I think it would be better if it was increased.
  7. In my opinion the soil and temperature are good, but humidity should be higher (at least 80% and more). Did the pitchers start to brown from the tips or the base of plant?
  8. I agree with Ben. H. elongata is slow grower, whereas H. folliculata is really fast. I have it (H. folliculata) for 5 years and despite of many mistakes I have done in cultivation, now it is large mature plant (25 cm pitchers in height) which have already flowered. Even H. heterodoxa I have for the same time is not as vigorous (have only 10 cm pitchers).
  9. Hi everybody, I am going to try tissue culture of Heliamphora. I know it might be difficult (or even very), but I decided that it will be my project for a biology contest, which could open the way to university. Therefore it is really important for me and I will be very grateful for any advice. Ok, now let's return to the main topic. The species I will try to micropropagate is H. heterodoxa. I am going to do it mainly according to the method described on with some tips from and from However, because I did not find almost any
  10. It might be a name of clone. I have one H. nutans labeled as 'CF'.
  11. Thanks. Lighting: The smaller terrarium is placed on east window, larger - on west, so plants in both of them receive direct sunlight during few hours of day. Of course in winter is permanently light deficiency, so over the smaller terra there are two T5 fluorescent lamps, each 24W. First one is 865 model, second one - 840. They are turned on for about 4 hours in summer/spring and 14 hours in winter/fall. Within the month I will also buy tubes of this same kind for the larger terrarium standing on west window, but 80W each. Temperature: I don't cooling in the winter. However in summer
  12. Hi! I have taken some photos of my small heliamphora collection, I hope you enjoy them. View of my older and smaller terrarium. The largest H. folliculata. Sorry for light reflects. The tallest pitcher of H. folliculata. View from the top. H. heterodoxa. Another H. heterodoxa, nicely covered by moss. View of my new, larger terrarium. Last added species, yet small. Cephalotus. Another H. folliculata. This one is for sale. A nice photo I have taken over a month ago.
