    There's something wrong again as I'm not receiving notification e-mails.

    Ptaah's Heliamphora collection

    I would like to introduce you to a great plant - probably one of the best H. minor var. minor clones out there. I love its' colour, the lid, and most of all - extremely short inner hair giving plant the appearance as if it was created of some delicate and exclusive cloth. The name "Velvet" feels about right here :) I'm sure my plant has still much potential to reveal. Heliamphora minor var. minor "Velvet" (Cerro la Luna)

    Ptaah's Heliamphora collection

    Hello, Some of you probably already know me, but to the rest I'd like to say that I've been growing Heliamphora for quite some time now (dating back to early 2000s) with some longer break in-between which I took to finish my studies and finally settle down. The main purpose of this thread is to share my passion with other Heliamphora growers around the world, gather new contacts, give thoughts and participate in constructive discussions which will hopefully lead to meeting people which I'm not familiar with yet, swap some interesting plants, acquire new knowledge etc. Feel free to comment and discuss. So here comes the first batch of pictures - oldschool stuff dating back to 2003 :)

    Couple shots of H. folliculata (Murosipan Tepui) - good looking species but growing mostly horizontally for me which I don't appreciate very much as it occupies too much space in terraria :)

    Pogonia ophioglossoides

    My Pogonia plants look mediocre comparing to this! Extraordinary! Do you treat them the same way as Sarracenia?

    Ptaah's Heliamphora collection

    This time I'll be presenting plants originating from Cerro Neblina. Some of them appeared earlier already but I feel that the update is needed. Heliamphora parva (Cerro Neblina) This is Wistuba's clone. I have no further data on it. It's amongst the most solid parva clones in my collection in terms of growth speed. Note the highly variable nectar spoon sizes on each leaves. Newest leaf has the biggest spoon. Heliamphora ceracea (Cerro Neblina) I simply love this species as it's so unusual and pretty in its' simplicity. My plant has exceeded 20cm in height and stays this way for the time being. Heliamphora x [ceracea x hispida] Its' newest leaf has much wider opening than the previous ones. I feel that this plant has much bigger potential to reveal in the future.

    Ptaah's Heliamphora collection

    Hello everyone after my very long absence! Since there are couple days of holidays in Poland I've decided to devote a little bit of free time and take some pictures. Heliamphora pulchella "Very large & very hairy" (Amuri Tepui) While still quite young and small, this plant starts showing some nice pulchella characteristics. Doesn't look very well at the moment but I believe it'll get there with time. Heliamphora huberi (Angasima Tepui) Very nice and elegant clone of H. huberi. Refused to grow for me for a year or so but tough times are finally over with the appearance of new nice growth. Heliamphora "Flamingo" Ok, there's no need to talk much about this abominable plant. Picture says it all :) Heliamphora exappendiculata "Giant bubble" (Aprada Tepui) There's always a good time to show fresh pictures of The Monster. A bit boring, maybe, but I simply adore this plant!
