    Boy, N.hamata is a VERY tough plant. I have accidentally sliced the stem,changed its environment several times, and exposed it to low humidity and it is still growing! I have it in 90% humidity with temps around 85F and it is still growing. Anybody else ever experienced something similar to this?

    I sure do.

    I think many neps are tougher then given credit for.

    My plant gets very low humidity this time of year, 30%, but does not stop it from pitchering.


    My N. bical is the only plant which I have seen any signs of not being happy, and this happened over the winter early spring. The plant just stopped growing because it was too cold for it. It has started to grow again now that the temps are up.

    Dont underestimate the neps ability to survive in tough conditions. They can grow in a maximum low humidity of 40%, a minimum temp of 50F and probably even lower and tougher. Go to exoticaplants.co.au and you will see the plants that are grown in tough conditions.

    To those who might be hesitant about getting a N.hamata, it is well worth the money because of how tough and easy to grow it is. From what I had read on various websites, this plant seemed to be really sensitive, but that is not the case.

    Well I hate to be a party pooper, but my two N. hamatas have done nothing but hate my conditions for the last month. It's been especially hot here in Southern California and the heat hasn't been kind to my plants.

    I'm actually in the process of redoing a good portion of my setup, switching from cool white tubes to daylight compact flourescents in an effort to help some of my plants out (the fixtures for the tubes were getting WAY too hot).

    Maybe my N. hamatas will perk up with these new cooler conditons. I'm also not keeping them on the tray system any more.

    The tray system is probably the biggest factor since N.hamata HATES to be in standing water IME.

    Yeah, maybe that's what my plants are hating. We'll see, since I just changed the conditions. I'll keep you posted Dewy and I'm glad to hear that your N. hamata is doing really well.

    Any updated pics?
