Heliamphora purpurascens – Wistuba – Mature – Rare – Specimen #2
This specimen is a well hardened-off clone from Wistuba. It’s larger, about 5 – 6″ across. It’s producing mature traps.
This plant prefers highland conditions, which means that it should be kept around 70-80°F during the day and 50-60°F at night with a very high relative humidity.
Heliamphora as a genus prefer high humidity, at least 75% RH for most species. In addition, they should be watered with distilled water, rainwater or reverse osmosis water rather than tap or well water. Fertilizing Heliamphora should only be done rarely, and with extreme care.
