Heli Identification Please


Recommended Posts

Hi,

sold to me more than 3 years ago as being nutans, but I have some doubts, can you please identify this plant.

Pot 15 cm diameter.

Thanks.

Hi!! This was my heliamphora, that I gave to a friend when I changed home... it is a nutans x heterodoxa, and I bought it with only two adult pitchers in a garden center at about 13 €...I think it could be the same plant... it is a very strong hybrid;-)

It's possible but it can be as well H. heterodoxa x minor. The H. heterodoxa x nutans clone I own tends to produce much bigger nectar spoons.

Also, I wouldn't put much faith in labelling of supermarket plants. I remember getting couple years ago H. heterodoxa x nutans from Matt Soper. At some point it ended up being virtually identical to my H. x midoxa plant. So which plant is valid and which isn't? Guess we'll never know.

Pictures for comparison:
