Mike Wilder crossed his massive, stem-forming tatei from Cerro Duida with the elegant, colorful H. arenicola x ionasi. We expect the resulting plants to form large, colorful pitchers, and like all Heliamphora hybrids, these should be vigorous and relatively easy to grow. Hopefully, some or all of these individuals will eventually form stems!
Please note the plants we are selling are larger than pictured and have mature pitchers.
Sun & Temp: They can thrive in cool, well lit greenhouses or in terrariums under florescent light. They are temperature sensitive. Keep daytime temperatures no higher than 80 degrees. They do best with a drop in temp at night. Ideally down to the low 50s or even mid 40s. They appreciate bright light but be careful not to overheat.
Water: Water with distilled or purified water frequently, do not let the pots sit in water for long periods of time but be sure to keep the potting medium moist all the time
Dormancy: none needed
