Generality of the Heliamphora Plant:

Heliamphora is a kind of plant with amphora or chalice shaped ascites which, when filled with rainwater, are transformed into perfect traps for any insect that has the misfortune to fall into it. The insects are attracted through a very sweet nectar, produced inside a small hat brightly colored red, facing the center of the trap. The heliamphora have two types of ascites depending on the stages of growth: the juvenile ones are very elongated, often slightly prostrate, with a small opening that is somewhat reminiscent of psittacine sarracenia. The adult ascidi instead are the typical amphorae that give the name to this genus.

Cultivation and Care of the Heliamphora Plant:

Dionaea loves sunny places sheltered from the wind. It should be watered regularly only with rain water or with distilled water, the tap water causes its death in a short time. In winter keep the soil moist, loose and well drained at acidic pH composed of a mixture of sphagnum peat, perlite and sand. It is a plant that absolutely must not be fertilized. The plant must be repotted only when the roots come out of the drainage holes of the water or when the peat that forms the substratum is in the process of rotting.
