Heliamphora heterodoxa

Heliamophora heterodoxa (Gran Sabana)

The easiest species. Very pretty, yellow-green pitchers with big dark-red lids. H. Heterodoxa is the only species that does not only grow on the Tepuis, but is also found in the Gran Sabana. Here it grows in bogs together with Stegolepis, Xyris, Drosera and other plants typical for the wet spots in the Gran Sabana.

Cultivation

Heliamphora heterodoxa (Gran Sabana)

As most Heliamphoras this species needs lots of light, cool nights and does not like permanent misting. The plants can be grown in various peaty mixes, however many growers prefer pure living Shagnum-moss. In recent times dead Sphagnum of very high quality from Chile and New-Zealand became widely available. A mix of such moss with horticultural-grade Perlite, a bit of good quality peat-moss and pinebark-choppings makes an excellent mix. However, when using Sphagnum-moss, it’s important to allow for a good drainage as otherwise, Sphagnum has the tendency to rot quickly. Please note, that all Heliamphoras require good illumination. They can, however easily be grown indoors under fluorescent tubes as long as they are close to the lights and temparature requirements can be met. Many growers in fact prefer to grow them in terrariums under fluorescent tubes from cultivatiing Heliamphora in the greenhouse.
