As you wish!

But trust me, the name H. tatei var. neblinae do not exist anymore since 10 years. Its old information. The morphological characteristics are very differents in shape, size and colors. I grow both.

The name has been changed by Dr Andreas Wistuba. This botanist made the botanical descriptions of almost all heliamphoras. I can contact him if needed.

Until he publishes his findings and they're recognized and accepted by taxonomists, we can't change our entry.
