Heliamphora ‘Flamingo’ is a unique, variegated marsh pitcher plant that produces mesmerizing pitchers. It quite literally illuminates my terrarium.

  • Temperature: from 10°C at night to 25°C during the day in the coldest months ; from 15°C to 32°C in the warmest months
  • Light: two 4000K 12W LED bars with reflector, located 50 cm above the plant, alight 12 hours a day ; occasional shaded sunlight in the morning from October to April
  • Soil: kanuma, topping of live red sphagnum moss, in a planter made of compacted tree fern roots
