H. pulchella (Akopan Tepui) In Flower

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

my H. pulchella (Akopan Tepui) is flowering since a few days now.

That was a good reason to take it out of the terrarium to take a few shots. :banging:

Here they are:

it�s not so well coloured, but now it�s standing more in the middle of the terraium, before it was in one of the corners :biggrin:

In some of the pitchers is growing some moss.

not so sharp, because of taking the picture from outside the terrarium through the glass

I hope you enjoy them.

Best regards,

Hi Daniel,

PRETTY THING! What a coincidence, my H. pulchella (Chimanta Tepui) is currently opening a flower, too! :banging:

Well, some of your Pulchella pitchers rather have their mouth full! :biggrin: Has there some substrate fallen into the pitchers?

;-)

Thank you for the show!

Regards,

Andreas

Very nice pictures Daniel!

I especially like the last one. Is Nepenthes dubia that we can see in the foreground?

Besides, i see you seem to grow orchids? Could you please tell me which genera?

I have a small collection of epiphytic orchids myself, mainly Sophronitis.

Thanks for the nice comments. :morons:

Andreas, good luck with your flower. I hope to see pictures from your plant and flower too. :ermm:

I think that no substrate has fallen into the pitchers, but who knows. In one of my H. ionasii´s also moss is starting to grow.

François, yes, you are absolutly right, that´s my little N. dubia. :lol:

In the moment i´m not at home so i´ll answer you about the orchids a little bit later or tomorrow, i don´t have all the names in mind.

Iggy, these days my H. ionasii will flower :P (in the last picture you can see it at the right top corner), also a H. nutans x ionasii will flower these days, but perhaps it will be too late.

With the H. ionasii for sure i will try self pollination, i hope it will work, but i have never tried yet.

Bye all,

Dani

Hi Dani,

I´ve already photographed my last year´s flower of H. pulchella (Chimanta Tepui) and don´t want to make new pictures actually. The last year´s pics were posted here on the board. Have you missed them? :nono:

I´ve had also moss growing out of older pitchers, but have found out that while transplanting a little bit of substrate fell into the pitchers. Never had moss growing out of my pitchers else. Let alone as much as in your pitchers. :cd:

Greetings,

Andreas

Hi varun,

thanks a lot.

I was absolutely sure you would like the moss inside the pitchers. :sweat:

The plant is flowering now for about 3-4 weeks and the flower has changed it´s colour into green-yellow, what is absolutely normal for Heliamphora flowers. But i think it´s still nice. :sweat:

Here is a little update.
