Well my computer sucks. I just typed up a few questions and some background info. about my growing conditions, but my comp took a crap on me. So, rather than retype it all I just want to ask you all one question: What are your suggestions on growing Hamatas? I can't get my rajah to pitcher yet, but with winter approaching I should be able to get lower nighttime temps. All suggestions/information/advice would be greatly appreciated. My hamata is shown potted in a 2.5" pot, potted in pure LFS. I have since changed it to a 1:1:1:1 Peat, Perlite, Vermiculite, Bark Mix. I put LFS on top, and placed the small root structure in the LFS, so as not to throw the plant into shock. The root structure was surprisingly small, but I am hopeful. It seems Hamatas are a bit more accepting of less-than-ideal growing conditions (from what I have read at least) so maybe I can get pitchers despite the San Diego heat year round. Someone stop me if they think otherwise because I have a burning urge to purchase 2 more Hamatas lol. Well, I didn't want to retype so much, but since I already have I guess I will type a little more. I currently have the plant in a 5 Gallon Terraium under T5 HO fluorescents. I put it in the small terrarium because it is easier to maintain lower temperatures than in my larger tank. This also makes the frozen water bottle method more effective. I have never used Trichoderma, but I am thinking I probably should. I saw a documentary about fertilizers (Modern Marvels) and it seems pretty legit. Again, all advice/suggestions are welcome. I just want to provide the best possible growing conditions for the plant that I can in my climate.
P.S. I have an Aristolochioides on the way. I didn't order it originally, but it was a replacement plant. How hard are they? Easier than Rajah? More difficult than Hamata?
