Heliamphora tatei

(3 reviews) Write a Review
This species is the tallest of all Heliamphora. In the wild, pitchers have been measured 2-3 tall. However, in cultivation, plants rarely grow larger than 18 inches. The pitchers remain cylindrical with a slight flare. The pitcher's interior remains green. A sunny greenhouse may be necessary to grow this plant taller than 12 inches. FOR THE EXPERIENCED GROWER.
