    The following note is based on some 7 years experience growing three species of Heliamphora - H. heterodoxa, H. nutans, and H. minor. This information is not intended to be a definitive or even a comprehensive guide to the cultivation of these species, but simply some observations on what I have found to work for me through trial and error. I have not conducted any rigorously controlled experiments on either potting mixture, light, or temperature
