    Yeah, now you tell me I could have had one 6 months ago. Its actually been a lot of work keeping it out of my collection. I think I became biased against it by all the people wanting something else, (alata), and getting "stuck" with a ventrata. I finally see it for what it is, a fine looking, tough growing pillar to the entire Nep community - and before you ask, no I won't trade it for your hamata.

    BTW, what is that brown stuff stuck to the bottom of the stem?

    i think its a callus/scar tissue type thing. ive seen similar on cuttings of other plants but i havent worked with Nep cuttings enough to know if its normal on them.

    That'll surely turn into a very nice plant in no time. I've found N. hamata to be the fastest grower in my collection (leaf/fortnight), even outpacing my ventrata.

    Good luck and have tons of fun!

    Bluffing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] And I thought a leaf/week would be slow!? My ventrata and mirabilis is now putting out a leaf/3 days or less, and miranda is doing a leaf every 5 days (without pitcher).

    Well strange, I find that the hybrids (ie. ventrata) are actually turning into vining monsters faster than the true lowlanders (eg. mira) even is SINGAPORE! Where the temp is 32*C through the day.

    It's going to be a while before it chews a hole through your ceiling.
