    Young Red Hairy Hamata acting weird!

    I have had this small red hairy hamata for just about a year.
    It was very small when I got it. For many months it did not pitcher for me at all.
    Now it has finally started pitchering again, but each new pitcher that developed was slightly deformed. The leaves grew long but skinny. Now I have a permanent spot for it in my basement and it seems to be improving. The new growth is starting to look normal again except there are two maybe three growths! What the heck would cause this? Stress?
    It grows with my Wistuba clones and they look great. I think it will be ok, just not used to seeing the main growing point do this. Anybody have this happen to them?

    It''s happened to me from time to time. Could be stress, not in this case, but it could be TC chemicals. Sometimes it just happens on its own. Just leave it be, but if the plant starts to look worse, cut one off at the base with a razor blade.

    This plant is supposed to be from seed.
    The live sphagnum moss is just a top dressing to the pot. I already trimmed it back once.
    Grows pretty good in a tank under lights. All my other Hamatas seem to like it.

    Just keep your fingers crossed and hope that all growth points stay healthy. You'll have a super bushy plant in no time.

    Yeah the hairy hamatas are from seed. I was just mentioning the fact that TC chemicals will do that as well.
