Heliamphora, or Sun Pitchers, prefer a wide range of temperatures depending on whether they are highland or lowland species. They prefer a well draining growing media that is low in nutrients. The carnivorous pitchers produce downward pointing hairs that force prey farther into the traps.

Growing media: Long-fiber sphagnum moss
Feeding: Feed bugs, dried bloodworms, or fish food every 2-3 weeks, fertilizer such as Osmocote may be added to pitchers sparingly
Humidity: 50-90%
Water: Keep wet at all times, use rain or distilled water, only use tap water if it is low in salts and minerals (PPM of 50-140, the lower the number the better)
Temperature: 65-85°F
Dormancy period: None
