Glad you like the pics. LOL, the Nepenthes sharing the spotlight with the Heli is N. Red Dragon. H. Tequila exhibits hybrid vigor, meaning it's one tough little you-know-what- of a Heliamphora. They will sulk during late summer (ie. Hurricane Season) with the warm nights, but constant high humidity and a little shade pulls them through. In the winter season they line the north-side bench, seeming to enjoy what becomes the coldest zone in our greenhouse.
I wasn't able to find Heliamphora "tequila" in the Carnivorous Plant Database. What is the exact status of this horticultural cross? I've noted that EP have different clones which are sometimes very different. This is thus no cultivar.
Have Geoff and Andrea made H. "Tequila" parentage public?
Apparently, Tequila is more of a grex than a cultivar. The multipule clones are clearly too divergent to consider as having the same charactistics of pitcher shape, while all(?) do seem to have a high level of heat tolerance compared to most other Heliamphora. While I don't know what the parents are, it sure isn't a F1 hybrid; which is why they look fairly different. Also, I suspect there must be a lowland/interemedia parent or two in there.

These are some really bad companies, all shells of Plantron Inc., so don't order from them unless you want small and dead plants they don't want to refund:
Farmer Seed and Nursery
Four Seasons Nursery
House of Wesley
Richard Owen Nursery
How do garbage companies like these stay in business, ripping people off year

Oooh my yes. Great plant! Took nights of 70 just fine, but really did pick up in growth and color in the winter.
It was still very happy in warm weather, though! It was much faster than H. heterodoxa x minor. I had to divide it three or four times over the course of a year. Flowered two or three times. Very robust plant.

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
