    Nepenthes Hamata Gunung Katopasa AW clone

    Anyone got this beastie? Wistuba has a picture on his site of a lower pitcher that is black and purple, I really liked the look of it. The teeth are stunning as well, I like it better than the 'Standard' Hamatas for sure.

    Unfortunately, I see it is out of stock. Has anyone actually (get ready for it...) RECIEVED an email from Wistuba regarding when this fascinating plant will be back in stock?

    Thanks!

    most, if not all, have turned out to be hybrids with Nepenthes nigra.

    Well, as long as they all look like the picture I don't care.

    But if they don't, definitely not going to get it.

    They dont have the teeth like those in the picture, they are greatly reduced. I think true katopassa N. hamata is rarer in cultivation than people realize. A lot of the hamatas labelled as such appear to be hybrids or actually from lumut.

    Ah. That's unfortunate, for sure. The teeth are the best feature.

    So you've got one you bought from Wistuba? Have you relabeled it and notified him?
