Thanks tuco,

 
 
Do you know which Heliamphora it is?
I bought from Wistuba in 2010 as Heliamphora heterodoxa (Ptari Tepui)

That good to hear, I received a jamesoniana a month ago and potted it into some chunky sphagnum, every other media I tried was death for jamesoniana in my conditions. It was divided potted up into five separate mixes and the only one that lived and know is filling it's small pot up is the one in pure slow growing live sphag. I used a half height pot filled with live sphag and then cut some holes in the bottom and threaded some live moss thru the holes and then rested that pot in a normal height pot with the lsm wick touching the bottom of the normal height pot, then I put it in my water tray for terrestrial utrics. It's doing good now, so it was lucky I tried a couple of mixes.

Simply stunning setup and plants, your basket method for displaying both for neps and heliamphora is both insired and inspiring, I may attempt a smaller version to start . As for the terrarium shots, they have a Jules Verne prehistoric world look and with a little imagination I would not be at all surprised to see a herd of miniature plant eating dinosaurs happily  munching their way across the scene with a meatosaurus skulking at the back.Thank you for sharing both your pictures and ideas....Simply stunning !

thanks guys
 

Well You understood, the greenhouse is open to the public at open days, usually when they are educational events, at other times you need to make an appointment.

Tepui are made of cement and painted

My English is too weak to describe it exactly, but the pictures it shows

I got some sphag a while ago on e-bay and it not only grows slow and even, it even has colour under Heli lighting. Even better, despite comming from the moors of Northern England, it grows just as well in a totaly artifical environment.

 

The reason I mention this is that it is avaliable again (early Oct 2015) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5-Kgs-FRESH-SPHAGNUM-MOSS-Best-Quality-New-Spagnum-Sold-Moist-/191698316024?hash=item2ca21c2af8
