The Heliamphora that I got last spring are doing quite well. Lots of growth and good color. However, my H. minor isn't developing nectar cups properly. As the leaf is growing they look good, but as they start to fill out and open, they just fail. My H. heterodoxa x nutans which is in the next...

My H. Nutans Giant was recently chewed over by a grasshopper, and now has become so stressed that two of it's growth points died (to be fair the grasshopper did serious damage).
I'm not really sure what to do for the plant at the moment, as I've never seen it so stressed out.
I've attached some...
After a long pause growing plants I recently started againin January 2016. Hopefully the spring will allow me to ramp up slowly and see what species I can grow outside without much trouble.

This is part of my larger project to renovate my grow shelf once I move into my new apartment in a few weeks. I've been wanting to put together a highland terrarium for awhile now. With the Wistuba group order at flytrapcare forums coming up and me being worried about the few highland plants...
I've had this particular Heliamphora for 3-7 years, but during one or more re-pottings (and a head spinning schedule of full time work/full time school for vet tech and, at 50, "due to the old age" as one of my girlfriend's Italian friend is want to say) I've lost track of what it is...
I don't want to buy one, but if anyone has an extra seedling I would LOVE to trade. Here's what I have for trade:
N. gracilima /alba - good size and outgrowing my three inch pot for it
N. (lowii x spectabilis) x talengensis - rooted cuttings. when they make pitcher they look like this...

I have a juvenile Heliamphora nutans for trade. It has two growing points and is at the stage of immature pitchers (though it is steadily growing). I am looking for unrooted nepenthes cuttings of species that I do not have. I could through in some utricularia and sarracenia for what I want the...

It's not so much that I'm bored with the other members of Sarraceniaceae. It's more like a Pokémon-ish desire to "catchem all." As such, behold my first Heliamphora. At this early point I have

I received my Heliamphora nutans x ionasii from a great friend, on February 24 of this year. As you can see in the picture the size, shape and color is just gorgeous.
The medium consists of LFS & Cypress mulch and I feed it these fish pellets:
I put a plastic bag over it, with a light...
