    Considering that the OP has been active this month, but has not posted any new information on this thread, it's probably safe to assume that the plant is dead.

    I hope he reports back to us, no matter what the status of the plant.
    I believe that if someone succeeds by approaching his plants with unorthodox/experimental techniques, we should all get to benefit from what was learned. If the plant did not survive the experiment, that too is worth our time and effort to study and absorb, so future growers don't make similar mistakes.

    Seems unlikely you're wrong, considering that the OP is ignoring all requests for an update. Ah well - live and learn, eh?!

    People his age are rarely taught how to lose/be proven wrong gracefully..........
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    This is a bit of a heated thread.

    I think I was one of a very few people that had tried a N. hamata as a windowsill plant years ago. To be exact, it has been growing as a windowsill plant since 7/15/2004.
    The N. hamata was a plant I always wanted. I did not have the "proper" setup required to have the plant thrive, so I was told.



    skoogenheimer good luck with your plant.
    Eddy is nice, but hamata still have the greatest looking, in my opinion. Your plant is just stunning!

    Hey all,

    Been super busy. I actually traded that eddy for an offer I couldn't refuse. I did however manage to get another baby TC'd eddy from Native Exotics. It's maybe 3/4 of an inch across I figure it will acclimate better to my conditions if it starts as a baby.

    I changed my setup a bit. I finally got a dedicated tank for my plants. I have an Amazon tree boa in there as well. Day temps are about 80 in the corner where the eddy is, and 68 at night. I also have a straight up ventricosa, ventricosa x merrilliana, and campanulata x robcantleyi in there as well. I have one of those monsoon misters in there so humidity hovers around 75% pretty consistently.

    Want pics, or would it make ya'll sad?

    I think you're probably going to get replies saying you still need to drop the night temps for that edwardsiana to survive (whether it's a baby or not if you don't give it the temperatures it needs it will NOT survive!!!), but the other neps should do pretty well in those conditions.
    And I want a pic of that boa......
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
