Heliamphora are mainly highland plants. They prefer cool days around 75/83F and night time 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 25 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.
Heli is from the Greek word helios, meaning "sun', so they also go by the name sun pitcher plants, marsh pitcher plants, or South
American pitcher plants. They secret sweet nectar which attracts prey. mainly small insects. The pitchers are covered in fine
downward-facing hairs that direct prey deeper inside. These hairs make escape impossible. The insects tire and fall into the plant's
digestive fluid. Enzymes break down and absorb the nutrients.
