    Hey Cindy,

    I find it depends on the clone. My first hamata was from BE and took about 6 months before it really settled in though I put part of that down to me as it was one of a group that was my first jump into highlanders.

    I also have 3 different Wistuba clones. One settled in pretty much instantly, one took about 2 months to settle in on the kitchen windowsill and the other is still working at it now so that makes it about 3 months, maybe 4...

    DM's uninsulated cold room like 50 drops nightly with a humid tank (thats why you see the adelea forestery) must be optimum conditions.

    Hey Cindy, I figured I would take a couple pics of my Hamatas... The one on the left settled in in less than a month and formed the two pitchers in about a month. The one on the right took about 5 months to settle in and created 4 baby pitchers within a month and a half. The leaves however have started shrinking, but I think this might be due to repotting stress combined with the fact that it had previously not had any pitchers for nutrients. Anywho, I think it is very interesting that both Hamatas can react so much differently in different growing conditions. They are both BE clones, but they must be from different TC clones.

    okay
    the pitcher in the back is the oldest and the one in front is the newest one and you can see int he second picture that it is forming a new pitcher.
    when the lid opens up the peristome is apple green so I wait a few days to take pics cause it colors up.
    its in high humidity like 70-80 percent and believe it or not its growing well udner this light

    thats 18" fixture its like a 15 watt and hamata is growing under it it defies believe thought it was weak and was barely enough for my adelae.
