Heliamphora Tatei Cerro Huachamacare BCP


Heliamphora Tatei was the second species of the genus to be discovered in 1928. It was named after botanist George Tate who had done surveys of Cerro Duida. This species, now known from three Tepui, Duida, Marahuaca, and Huachmacare, is the largest species, and one of the most impressive with its green pitchers. The Cerro Marahuaca and Huachmacare forms of this species produce a self supporting stem over time that can reach 1.5 meters tall. This is a rooted division of a single clone of the Cerro Huachmacare form of H. tatei from BCP.
