    Very nice! It's been my experience that N. hamata does grow well in proper conditions with good soil flushing. I got an 4" diameter N. hamta from Tony P. and within about 18 months it had matured and begun climbing. I do orchid fertilizer flushes + micro nutrients once per month as well so that maybe helps get the plants larger faster.

    Thanks everyone for all the nice comments. I didnt realize that it grew especially fast. Its been a very steady grower for as long as I have had it producing a new leaf/pitcher about one every 3 or 4 weeks.

    I dont keep any kind of records of my conditions, but near as I can estimate it gets about 70-80 daytime and upper 50's to 60's nighttime in summer, and upper 60's daytime and mid to low 50's nighttime in winter. Up untill about a month ago it sat in an uncovered 5 gallon fish tank in front of a west facing window. As you can probably tell from the photos I recently moved it under the fluorescent lights in an attempt to get the pitchers to color up a bit. I dont keep track of what the humidity is in the house but it tends to be fairly dry here in San Jose so I suspect that its actually quite low. Its planted in a 4 inch pot and if you want the soil recipe you need to ask Max (Capslock) as it is still in the same pot and soil he put it in when he gave it to me.

    Cheers

    Those conditions actually give me hope to try growing N. hamata myself. Now if I could only find one...
