    Elgecko's magic window! What about the Rajah and the Bicalcarata that were there? Are they still alive?

    Traded the rajah way a long time ago. Looked to be settling in well. Just didn't have the space.
    The bicalcarata is still here. Looks terrible. Probably because its been in the same soil for over 5 years and its all broken down (Just checked records.... around 8 years. Wow I'm bad at repotting. Would explain the look of some plants.). I did replant a bunch of Sarrs this spring that according to my records where in the same pot for 6 years. No wonder they looked unhappy. Still have a few more plants to repot so that they are in fresh soil.

    Wow that hamata is beautiful! Gives me hope. It's still alive! I'm pretty busy with the holidays but I'll post more pics soon.

    How often/if at all were you misting your hamata?

    Having seen this from both sides of the climate coin, I think the reality is somewhere between the two opposing narratives we're seeing here. In Bay Area, CA, sure you can stick just about anything outside or on a sunny windowsill and it'll thrive. But that being said, just because you don't have optimal climate, that doesn't mean that you need to have a sophisticated, highly-engineered life support system to keep the plant going.

    One of your biggest issues is going to be humidity. When temps are decently high you'll be running AC and drying out the air. When temps are decently low you'll be heating up already-dry air giving you very low relative humidity. Also be aware that temperatures on a windowsill can differ wildly from the rest of the house depending on how good your windows are.

    Is it impossible? Not at all, but you're going to need to do some reading into conditions the plant likes and come up with some ideas for how to address the discrepancies between that and your local climate. With school, holidays, etc, you'll find that the more you can "dummyproof" your system, the happy you and your plant will be. An existence where you need to mist your plant X times per day is a lousy one for both you and your plant.
