    well, be careful with it...hamata hates being disturbed...but if it isnt doing anything right now, maybe it needs a change.

    The mix I use for neps is

    1 part lfs
    1 part perlite
    a handfull of peat
    1 part vermiculite
    a bit of hortacolture charcoal
    1 part pumice
    1 part fine grade orchid bark
    1 part medium grade orchid bark
    and a top dressing of long fiber spagnum

    hope it works

    And the solution is.... send it to me!!

    On a more serious note; Try repotting it. And do you ever feed it? After all it is a carnivorous plant and it's lookin' a bit on the hungry side!

    well...i WOULD feed it, but it's only pitcher is home to a spider...that decided to block the entire entrance with web.

    there is a large window in my room, but the grow rack is located in the back of the room...and my room is very small and i can't move it. on the other hand, i'm going to college soon, so maybe my dorm room will have a nice window in it...

    To me looks like the leaves are turning yellow out of lack of nutrition, so you need to clear the pitcher out and feed it or fertilize it..
