Hi! guys, it's time to legalize. Heliamphora-I have not been growing
these types of CP for very long. The four H. hetrodoxa and one H.
ionsai x nutans seem very happy. The hybrid and one of hetrodoxa are
growing in a 20 gallon terrarium that I keep very wet. I have 2-3 inch
thick layer of peatmoss in which I planted several common Drosera, S.
purp , Darlingtonia, Cephelotus(misspelled?). The Heliamphora however
are growing in a the diagrammed method below.

I do believe that this method of growing helps simulate the natural
humidity levels while providing the needed drainage to the rhizome and
some of the roots

The other three hetrodoxa plants are in growing conditions pretty close
to those formentioned plants (65-80% humidity). These have good
drainage, although different methods are imployed and they don't grow as
robust or as fast as the first two.
