My first heli flower

Following the teachings of the great jedi master,Butchie, I am now enjoying my first heli flower, or rather my first two. :boogie:



These will make for some interesting crosses.
Woohoo, congrats my young apprentice ;-P
Very nice work!

reminds me of this pic:

You folks may not believe it, but so do I.. First I've ever seen in person even.
Beautiful plants!

There are a total of 7 flower stalks on this heli, and a possible 8th. The first 3 have emerged from their sheaths.



I do enjoy the red veining on this clone prior to the pitcher turning red:-D

Very nice! What heliamphora is that? uncinata? exappendiculata?

Thanks, it is H. exappendiculata (Amuri tepui) from Wistuba.
