    Wanted: Established hamata or macrophylla

    Please PM to discuss trade...
    'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
    'Oh, you can't help that', said the Cat: 'we're all mad here.
    I'm mad. You're mad.' 'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
    'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here.'

    Good luck on this quest. Might be a long wait.

    It depends what you mean by "established"; if you mean you want larger-than-one-or-two-inch plants, that is indeed going to be a challenge. Most of us have settled for buying plants in the 2" or smaller category and growing them on. That said, it appears that a certain Cali nursery does have hamata (Malesiana clone) available in what looks to be a size larger than 2". Not inexpensive, as you might expect, but its not like you find big plants of this for sale.....ever.

    If all you want is a plant that has been in the US for six months or more and is growing well, (size irrelevant) then there are sources. If you want suggestions, PM me.

    The California nursery... Their hamatas are maybe 3" across producing like 1.5" pitchers that you can actually see some nice teeth on. I'd say in a year they would look pretty nice. They have a beautiful speckling which I absolutely love. Not very cheap though. If they were under $200, I would have got one myself. The 1" ones are like $220, the 3" ones are $280... I'd personally pay the 8" extra and get triple and a better survival chance.

    That Calif nursery sold me a "medium" plant that measures about 2.5 inches. Read carefully.
