Yea, agree with that. But, im scare to give it more light since the plant is grow at L/L and scare it will burn the plant.

for me no "lowland" but " hill land" ( with altitude savanna ) you know .

I use the "lowland" term just for the species growing to 0 m ( sea level) to 600 m .

29 to 32 c all the time ?

I think it is too warm for the heliamphora , some peak yes but not allways .

glad to know that you have such concern on the 'lowland' term and the temperature in our country (for this instant, peninsula malaysia). 'lowland' as much of us here referring to is from sea level to 600m or i can say much lower than 600m! therefore the temperature is around 29c to 32c in the day and as low as 20c at night provided that there is no 'hellish' drought or 'rainwater pouring' monsoon season where the temperature and humidity varies greatly. it is not easy for us to maintain the ideal growing environment for heliamphora and other CPs. do you have any heliamphora with you? mind to show us some pics on how you keep them?

you can see my grow list in the appropriate rubric.

all my heliamphora are in a terra .

here in LE MANS (FRANCE) we have a temperate climat ,actually we are in winter .

my terra closed are in front of a south window to 50cm , just a lid open to 5 mm

actually with a sun low in the sky , this terra have a good natural light , like 'in situ ' from december to march .

all the pot are in 2-3 cm of rain water.

allways with 80-90% hygrometry , the pitcher allways with water .

actually with the day 19-22c the night 17-18 c

in summer I have 22-25 c with some time some pics to 35c the night 19-20c allways with the same hygrometry.

no fertilizer for them just some time some alive insect .

my substrat just blond peat + vermiculite 50/50

my heliamphora terra in JULY 2007 more great now but with some light problem , I must change my installation the next year.



you can see also here http://fern72.free.fr/siteweb/heliamphora.html ( change the language with the google module) some one 'in situ' or mine in culture in 2008

on my first page yes it is their habitats , on the top of the tepui.


along my web site you see a lot of heliam "in situ " more are very red , we are on the equateur , the strong UV in this country from december to march make this colour .

here to LE MANS the UV is not the same , but if the pitchers spoon are very red the plants are in good shape .

to have a red pitchers in cultivate you can use a "turbo neon" , but the artificial UV are not the natural .

hmm, strong UV rays/ lights resulting redder pitcher for heliamphora in natural habitat, do artificial UV lights meant for aqua hobby will have the same result and effect on heliam? you mentioned 'turbo neon', care to explain further? anyone tried to place UV lights for CPs?
