Mystery Heli

Hi guys,

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 have an H. minor and H. nutansXheterodoxa and I know I've had a nutans and *think* I had a standard heterodoxa but I'm not sure. To add to the confusion, I know I bought some of these Heli's (and maybe others) from a very nice person on this list a few years ago, but don't remember his/her name or what I bought. Phew. Going to post a pic of their garden marker in case someone recognizes the writing.

Thanks all for your time and patience!
Tony Thomas

To be that old and to be that small, bound to be a minor or minor hybrid of some flavor
The red stripe, the nectar spoon all remind me of minor, but there's something else in there too imho

I don't recognize the writing, definitely not mine, nor Ron Lanes (his labels are awesome), pretty sure its not crissy's either

unknown minor hybrid... lol
