Heliamphora is one of three genera of the family Sarraceniaceae (the others are Darlingtonia and Sarracenia). One interesting fact about Heliamphora is the area where it grows: the flat-topped mountains (called "tepuis") of what is collectively called the Guiana Highlands. These mountains, which average about 2400 m tall, rise rather sharply to flat summit areas that are often cloud covered. Heliamphora can be found in wet, boggy areas of the tepuis. This picture shows Heliamphora minor on Chimanta-Tepui.
