Sun Pitcher Plants (Heliamphora)

Heliamphora pulchellaReminiscent of delicately sculpted vases, with tall stems of lovely, lily-like flowers, the sun pitchers (Heliamphora) of South America have a beautiful simplicity.  Related to their cousins in the north, Sarracenia and Darlingtonia, these are the only pitcher plants of the southern continent.

Adapted to high winds, growing atop the Tepui mountains, the pitchers are tough yet brittle with delicate nectar spoons to lure insects. These plants require specialized growing conditions and we recommend cool terrariums, with high humidity, under grow lights.
