Heliamphora question

Recommended Posts

I`m thinking to buy few Heliamphoras, but the care is intresting. I have read that they need cold nights as Highland neps, how people here do this? Can i put plants in fridge to nights, or how? These plants are so nice, but they seem to be little difficult. Is somkind cooling systems ok?

The hybrids seem to be a little less demanding when it comes to night-time temperature drops. H. ionassi x heterodoxa is easy going in my conditions, in fact I grow it on my kitchen windowsill. I also have H. minor growing on the same windowsill. Plants that come from nurseries or private collectors are typically used to higher humidities though, so would require acclimatising to grow outside terraria,
