Very nice photos of amazing plants!

What a collection of Heliamphora :yes:

I'm jealous :yes: ... and they have all adult pitchers (most of them)!!

What a big H. tatei, I mean the one on the fifth photo, does it have a stem?

Some big H. folliculata's too!

What lights are you using for your Heliamphora, they are very well coloured?

But your Nepenthes photos and plants are great too! :yes: I love the N. jamban!

Wow, That is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOL!!! I love the airplants behind the heliamphora it looks neat! And the nepenthes look awsome as well, I have always liked villosa, But everything I have read says it is a bit tricky to grow, but yours looks great!

Thank you for all your nice comments.

All the H. tatei in the background have already a small stem. The plants are about 5 years old now.

For this setup I use six bulbs of 54 watts each. The colour is quite nice though the lights are quite far away from the plants.

I also like those small orchids because it’s a nice decoration for the background of the setup and it needs not much space and care. ;-)
