Heliamphora Tatei Cerro Marahuaca 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 single clone of the Cerro Marahuaca form of H. Tatei
from BCP.
