    I wish we could get seed from the lower end of the range but these plants inhabit quite a narrow altitude band. These are from 1900m.

    The red colouration of the leaves is due to light levels in the nursery and will not be maintained as the plants grow up. The lower pitchers of this form are more robust than the commonly cultivated TC clones from another location but the uppers don't have as large sickle teeth.

    If someone would PM me with where such hamata were available, I'd be much obliged.

    Me too,

    N. hamata is such a nice plant when grown well... here is a photo of one of mine I took today.



    Thanks

    Oooh! Oooh! Jeremiah!

    Is that specimen seed-grown or from some rubbish TC clone?

    Serously though, that's a great example of how much more attractive Neps are when they have multiple growing points and are not allowed to vine. Did you prune it at some stage or did it produce basal pups by itself? Of course, unlike most species, N. hamata has very interesting uppers with the clawed peristome.

    Anyone thinking of purchasing the seed-grown hamata might like to know:

    1) The plants do not have red leaves when mature.
    2) The uppers are not as spectacular as the clones circulated in TC as the peristmes don't have quite such pronounced teeth or "claws".
    3) The lowers on wild specimens are more robust (bigger) than the commonly circulatd TC clones and are all nicely coloured.
    4) A few wild specimens observed had red teeth on the peristomes of lower pitchers.
