    Same here. I think it's a beautiful species, so I hope it's true that the plant will start becoming available soon.

    It's quite a small Nepenthes, isn't it?

    It's a lovely little species IMO, definitely a miniature. The current relatively high price is related to it's scarcity vs. demand and not to it's difficulty to cultivate, as it seems quite easy.

    Supply of N. hamata will ease up eventually. For our part, we had to discontinue our original two clones due to license reasons and obtained another two clone in-vitro from elsewhere, both of which which promptly contaminated after the journey. This caused a big gap in production which is just improving now as it took us about 2 years to get those clones cleaned up. Of course, we're not the only suppliers. The hairy N. hamata will be available from TC clones as from about mid 2007.

    Nothing happens quickly with Neps does it? Guess that's a small part of the fun.

    Alex, may I ask where you got the photo for your avatar from?

    Looks like one of your habitat shots Rob!

    Rob, could you elaborate on the license problem with N. hamata? You can PM me if you wish.

    Thanks
