Heliamphora & other jewels of my highland terrarium

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

It has been a while since I showed pictures of my set-up, so I have decided to launch this thread.
Here we go.

Heliamphora tatei {Cerro Huachamachare} :

Heliamphora neblinae {Cerro Neblina} :

Heliamphora glabra {Wei Tepui}. I have accidentally broken one growing point recently :(. I'm going to try my 'highest cutting' ever :

Deserving a special highlight, as it is currently blooming in my terrarium for the first time, Utricularia campbelliana {Wei Tepui} :

Not really a highland plant, but getting well as I have never been truly successful with this species, Pinguicula planifolia :

Thank you guys :).

Just to share a 17 pictures stack of U. campbelliana. I'm quite new with this photography technique, but satisfied enough with the result :) :

I used to try focus stacking with Drosera, but I found it harder : the reflection in the droplets spoiled most of my pictures. I should give it a try once again. BTW, I hope your problem with czplants has begging to be settled down.

A Pinguicula sp. Guatemala 2000m. Don't know whether this plant has been named. If anyone does, he is welcome to tell about :).

Hello Vince,

 

congratulations, really very well grown Heliamphora.

And the U. cambelliana is absolutely awesome.

 

Best regards,

Daniel

Stunning! I see you grow U. campbelliana similarly as i do, at least it looks similar. I have an epiweb piece bended in the pot and covered by a thin layer of mosses (max. 1 cm), where the campbelliana grows - do you grow it like that too?

Hey Dani, it has been a while, thank you :).

 

Thank you Zlatokrt. Actually, I don't really grow it 100% like yours : mine is in a small square pot of 5x5cm, in a typical substrate based on peat moss, sand and perlite. The moss came spontaneously, and is the result of the time. I haven't manipulated my plant for 2-3 years, just letting it grow. I'm considering putting some on the xaxim that I have in my terrarium too :).

Interesting Ping, would love to see more pics! The flower looks somewhat intermediate between that of moranensis and orchidioides. Does it produce stolons like orchidioides?

 

 

Thanks!

Thanks for your interest Fernando. The full name of this plant is : Pinguicula sp. Guatemala {Chichicastenago, 2200 m} [bCP ID# P534, P537]

 

I don't have many pictures of this plant at the moment.

Here is when the flower was ageing :

Your plants are absolutely amazing, congratulations. See your set-up is like an in situ observation.

Just staggering Vince. Do you repot your plant every year?

I'm asking because I didn't repot mine for about 4/5 years, a mistake I believe.

Cheers,

François.

Your plants are in perfect condition and pictures are breathtaking. I'm totally jealous :) It seems that each and every species is thriving!

Thank you for the kind comments.

François, I do not repot my plants on a regular basis. Actually, I'm not used to repotting them, unless there is something particular, as it is in the present case.

Usually, once they are repotted right after their reception, I do not touch to them any longer. The less I manipulate them, the better I feel. Hopefully, so do my Heliamphora.
