    I think it's nuts that a N. hamata can thrive under such low lighting conditions. I guess I sometimes forget that most Nepenthes enjoy filtered light in the wild. Perhaps it's this misconception that has led to the death of countless tropical pitcher plants under my haphazard care!

    Most neps experience very high light in the wild. Lots of pics from wild populations are in full sun for lowlanders. Highlanders usually grow in "filtered light", but "filtered" at 2000m = full at 0m.
