    hamata's a weird little plant. Seems that some people lose leaves and pitchers and even plants with the tiniest fluctuations, and others grow it on windowsills in 30% humidity with ease.

    Very nice Hamata =). You picked that up from a local nursery eh? They don't happen to sell online do they? No need for a vendor name, just wondering if it's who I think it is. Anywho, very sweet christmas gift =).

    PK, mine is only 3-4inches across. I got it last year and this coming January is our anniversary. What about your PK? I am really interested on how you grow hamata in your condition, Texas. Let us know if you have any secretes.
    We can go for days without food, but we can't pass 5 minutes without air. REMEMBER TO BREATH!!!

    Trouble breathing? Let me know.

    My hamata succumbed to the legendary shipping shock which has been known to accompany small ones. When I received mine, it was about 1.5" across. I had it in constnat 80% humidity, and it was given the proper temps (this was during fallish, when my part of Texas is actually kind of cold). Here's a day by day journal of my hamata:

    Day 1: nothing
    Day 2: nothing
    Day 3: Black leaf
    Day 4: dead

    If I try it again, I'll talk to the person I'm getting it from and make sure its hard. Not saying mine wasn't, but when small hamatas die from shipping in the hands of Tony Paroubek...what was I supposed to do :P
