Sorry for the soft pic, as good as I can do handheld at 1/15th :0o:

I think its going to be worthy of a name... definitely unique
:-O

Another from a different cross...

H. parva x folliculata and H. parva x sarracenioides

But out of many siblings, these two are special imho

Excellent work! I would love to see how they stick out in comparison to the parents or rest of the siblings. For us common folk who can never acquire and grow so many awesome Heliamphora it can be hard to recognize some of the slighter nuances between plants.

well, real right off.... 90% of their siblings are still immature and less than 1.5" tall....
but these two, from seed to what you see now in under 18 months.... very strong growers

the dark cherry color in the first is definitely H. folliculata influence,

Thanks Dex, thanks V.... just waiting on you to get back into helis so we can see what you do with the voodoo that you do :p

wow, is the pitcher on the first plant fully open, or is it still developing?

Mike, still in development. I will update the thread once it fully opens :)

Well done, Av8tor1! Both hybrids show great beauty and promise.
Thanks for sharing them,
Paul

Thanks Paul!

The hooded man looks scary. What have you been feeding it?
Little pink and white gerbil looking thangs.... seen any?

Butchie Jr #1 - needs to learn how to shave soon and I am breaking out the wax for good measure

Butchie Jr #2 - more colorful and less hairy. I was recounting how consuming an exorbitant amount of carrots can lead to carotenemia. I guess junior took it to heart.

ahhhhh my first born and the first of their kind, I'm so proud.... lololol

Definitely can see a diff in those two siblings...
#2 definitely shows more H. sarracenioides influence, does it have external pitcher hair?.... kind of hard to tell from pic

I think there will be some nice cultivars from that group :)

Remember, I get a division if they turn out to be super awesome fantastic LOL

I'll try to add a couple pics of mine in a few days

Wonder how the NASC one is doing?
(where are ya KPG? LOL)


well done pokie

Do Heliamphora hybrids have a similar sort of vigor as Nepenthes hybrids, or no?
