What a bargain! - and to think people said they were weeds... Are you sure
it's one seed - or one seed-capsule?

BTW, in a recent "Your Garden" magazine classifieds (they have a CP section!)
the following were listed:

(Allen Lowries ad - you've got this in the sources list)

Heliamphora heterodoxa, various sizes available. For details write to:
P.O. Box 1017, Hartwell, 3125.

(I know nothing about this supplier - pity I can't afford Heliamphoras...)

Heliamphora nutans available in Spring, by order only. Non-sterile flask,
single plant - traps to 2 inch - (AUS)$50. Heliamphora heterodoxa
also available, $100 mature plant. Australia's largest range of
carnivorous plants and other bizarre oddities. Collector's Corner
Gardenworld, Springvale Rd., Keysborough, 3173. Ph (03) 798-5845.

(Gardenworld doesn't have *that* large a range of CPs, but lots of cacti,
orchids, bromeliads, rocks, fossils, etc...)

DISCLAIMER - (Insert typical disclaimer here - I have nothing to do with
the companies/people involved - buyer beware, Heliamphoras are hazardous to
your bank balance, if swallowed seek medical advice, etc...)
