    Sorry Bill, most definately not.

    Not sure what happened! I got many many from BE also and they are all true. Must have been just a single plant label mixup or something.

    Don't have anything like this floating around labelled as N. hamata?


    Sorry kinda lousy picture I just snapped off today.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thanks everyone.
    Tony- I must admit I was confused over the leaves. All the photos I have seen they look fairly hairy, which mine are not. The leaf edge damage was caused by the increased light levels, as it only occured when I tried the plant in a new position. Its now in better compost alongside my hamata in the more humid part of the house. As long as the growing tip does not go black it hopefully will be ok. (fingers crossed)

    It wouldn't be the hairy hamata by any chance

    Thanks Simon for contacting Rob for me.

    cheers

    Bill, I can't view the first of your photos, your server returns an error message. However, I can see algae on the second photo. May be a root problem. You could try a fungicide good for phytopthera or pythium.

    That looks to me too like one of the new N. hamata. no way have we ever shipped any of those labeled as N. vogelii. Just no chance IMO.

    The hairy N. hamata are proving so far to be very difficult in cultivation. I think everyone agrees on that.

    Did you ever buy a hairy N. hamata off Simon or anyone else?

    This hairy N. hamata you speak of...Is this somehow different than a typical N. hamata? I have a few N. hamatas on the way this week and you're scaring me!

    Yes, don't worry, the hairy N. hamata seems very different, at least so far. The more typical N. hamata is actually quite vigorous if grown in good conditions. The hairy version crawls along in the same conditions for reasons unknown to me.

    Ok, good to know. Just out of curiousity: What do you consider to be "good" conditions for N. hamata?

    Typcial intermediate/highland. We have 13deg. C at night and about 25 deg C day. RH always >70%. In our experience, hamata is fussy abot humidity and won't pitcher well if it's too low. Pleanty of light as with most Neps.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info. I'll definitely be giving my N. hamatas more of an intermediate environment. I live in Southern California and it does get pretty hot here, especially in the summer. Hopefully they'll adjust.

    What's your experience with N. hamatas and their tolerance for higher temperatures?
