Agreed, very nice Heli's and great setup.

And just a question: what do you think about my H minor ? I have a doubt about it

I could be wrong, but I think it looks about right. The general size/shape/colour of Heli's is very dependant on the level of light they get and can change quite considerably.

Salut,

Very healthy and pretty Heliamphora :D

I think your Heliamphora minor lacks a bit of light but is healthy.

I saw it on the French forum but I have a doubt about your Heliamphora heterodoxa (Gran Sabana). It's more like to be an Heliamphora heterodoxa from Ptari Tepuy :tu:

Hi, Franklin

Nice collection of Heliamphora.

From the second I saw your first photo I knew it was labelled wrong. I would say that its a H. heterodoxa X minor hybrid. The extreme 'dome' of the nectar spoon, and red strip at the back of the pitcher are classic a give-away!

Regards

Beautiful plants and a lovely collection.

I agree with Langy, your minor is really minor x heterodoxa. The heterodoxa 'Gran Sabana' is almost definately the Ptari form, the nectar spoon is a of a classic Ptari shape and although widely named as such, your nutans is the 'giant' form which is most likely ionasii x glabra. I hope this is of some help.

Thank you very much :tu:

ok for all this corrections :wink:

And yes, the H. heterodoxa is the Ptari.

This is my gran Sabana (It come from Jean Jacque Labat, i hope it's the true^^)

Hi Franklin,

very nice and healthy plants though they are not much coloured.

Do you grow the Heliamphora in the chamber shown in the last pitcher outside?

H. heterodoxa (Gran Sabana)

p10806020135993we2.jpg

I do not agree with Andy. I'm quite sure that this is the typical H. heterodoxa from the Gran Sabana.

H. het. from Ptari Tepui looks different and has more slender pitchers and a different nectar spoon.

Cheers,

Markus

thank you very much for all your answer :tu:

yes, they are in a terrarium in my greenhouse.

They was only illuminate by sun (full sun during the morning), but they are not very coloured, as you say.

So i added artificial light this summer, i wait if the new picthers are more coloured.

Hi, Franklin

Im sorry to say again, but I dont think that this plant is labelled correctly either!

Personally I would say that its a H. heterodoxa X ionasii hybrid.

The old pitcher on the left of the plant, is the typical shape for this hybrid, where as H. heterodoxa "Gran Sabana" is more slender and not so wide at the pitcher opening, even in low light levels.

Regards

Langy

Here's a picture of my Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionasii if it's any use for comparison...
