Heliamphora nutans BE 3249


Heliamphora nutans BE 3249 was discovered in 1839;  this was the first species of Heliamphora to be described. An ideal beginners’ species, it tolerates a wide range of temperatures compared to most other Heliamphora. All Heliamphora require high light levels and this species is no exception.

It’s best to grow these under supplemental LED lighting to achieve maximum color and growth. Humidity is important and these are slowing growing plants. Leaves can grow to 8 inches high.

Plants are potted in 4 inch pots with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.
