Heliamphora nutans - adaptation

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I have some questions

I'm thinking in buying an H. nutans, but the plant it's used to terrarium and I pretend to put it as windowsill plant.

I have an H. heterodoxa as windowsill and it's very healthy and big, grows vigorously.

I want to know the steps to adapt a Helliamphora used to terrarium, so high humidity, to a windowsil with not much humidity...

Thanks :)

I don't grow Heli's myself, (would love to start though) but I would imagine the bag method would work just fine for you.

Thank you for the comment

But I don't think that the bag method is the best in this case, because at full sun the bag would be very hot.

But like heterodoxa hot is not a problem with nutans i guess?

Thanks

You can take a look here (http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=46796) to see what I did with mine. After a few weeks I started to cut the bottle around it's circumference making the opening wider. Like slicing a tomato I guess. I kept making the adjustments every 2 weeks.
