1. Only ONE (1) Plant per member may be entered in any particular month. This means one Nep vine, one Sarr Rhizome, one pygmy dew etc.
2. All pictures must be taken in the month of entry into the contest.
3. All entries must be clearly identified.
4. Entries are restricted to cultivated plants.
5. Contestants may post as many times and as many pictures of their entry as they like until contest closing on 03/31/13
6. Sequential pictures showing opening of a pitcher, unfurling of a leaf etc. are fine as long as all pictures are taken within the month of the contest.
7. If, for some reason, a single pitcher/plant/whatnot cannot be isolated and a group shot is necessary, then the particular pitcher/plant/whatnot entered must be clearly identified in your post.
8. Plant must have been grown by owner at least six months prior to photo, or sprouted from seed by the owner.
9. I didn't like this rule. You can keep entering the same thing month after month and if people still like it without getting sick of it, so be it.
10. Times of Contest and Poll openings and closings are to be understood as EST.
11. Judging by forum members and guests in a poll opening on 04/01/13, closing 04/05/13 and using this forum in this thread! Voting will appear at the top of the thread at the close of the contest entries.

Oh man, that pitcher is stunning.... gonna be a hard act to follow.
Wow stunning !
Just noticed that this plant was finally starting to show the unusual nectar spoon (even after being rudely divided). I find the 'beak' and the hair (along with the 'bald spot') to be an interesting combination.
March must be Heli month :).

H. "Foothills Testigos" which looks like is now named H. collina ???

Same flower, just different angles.


  • #10
fantastic! Do you have any pictures of it's pitchers?
  • #11
Thanks Luca! Unfortunately no. I saw the flower and concentrated solely on it.
  • #12
Well the flowers look great :), I dont think I have seen adult pitchers of H. collinae in cultivation, how tall does it get?
  • #13
Oh, could we get some close-ups of the naughty bits of Heliamphora flowers? I was working on a presentation of the flower structures of the New World pitcher plants but I don't have anything for Heliamphora.
  • #14
I'll see what I can do today. It will give me a chance to get some flower macros. Those were taken with a SMC Tak 50mm.

Thanks Luca! My pitchers are roughly 4-5" tall.
