This is an ideal Heli for beginners. It clumps quickly and can handle warmer temperatures.
Heliamphora is mainly highland plants. They prefer cool days around 75/83F and nighttime drops near 55-60F for success. The plants handle warmer temperatures quite well given the humidity is very high. Because they require a lot of light, many growers have great success indoors with LED and T5 grow lights. Moist, bright, and good airflow is key.
The genus Heliamphora is contains 23 or so species endemic to the Tepui Mountains of the Guiana highlands in Venezuela. All species are endemic to isolated mountain ranges known as the Tepuis. These sandstone formations are also called the table mountains, and each one is isolated from the jungles below. The weather can be cold and rainy, but when the sun comes out the light is very strong.
