My H. heterodoxa x ionasi is developing a seed pod but I recently rearranged my grow shelf and the inflorescence is no longer receiving much light (the pitchers are still getting plenty) and I'm concerned that the low light might negatively impact seed pod development. Does anyone know if Heliamphora seed pods must receive bright light to develop properly?

The inflorescence does not support itself on just about any plant. If the plant is getting enough light to maintain appearance, it will support seed production.

Hello Werdna :) I speak from my very personnal experience; i had my biggest seeds harvests when the growing pods was directly under the heat of my grow lights.
Like very close.
