Heisenberg groups are simply connected nilpotent Lie groups of class 2. A group is called almost homogeneous if its automorphism group acts with at most 3 orbits. Several open problems about the existence of embeddings between almost homogeneous Heisenberg groups have been posed in a previous paper by the second author [J. Lie Theory 10 (2000) 443-453]. Most of these problems are solved.
