The fruits of Heliamphora are dry when they mature, and split open at the sides to reveal numerous seeds--botanists call such fruits capsules. The seeds probably shake out through the slits in the capsule. A stronger wind would shake out more seeds, which would be advantageous in carrying a higher proportion of the seeds for longer distances.
