    ailing Hamata...any thoughts?

    The leaves are kinda yellowish and seem quite thin.
    it's environment has not changed since last fall...and it only made one pitcher since then...and it was quite big, but that was over 3 months ago...

    it has many pitcher buds...but none seem to want to pitcher anymore...

    i just sprayed it insecticide...just in case it was thrips...AGAIN!

    it's temps are 80's during the day, mid 60's at night, with a humidity boost at night, up to 90%

    any thoughts?

    here's some pics

    uhh, the media is peat/coconut fibers and husks...but that hasn't changed either....do you think the problem is old media? it's about a year old...

    lighting is 2 20" floresent tubes....they haven't changed either...just replaced them like last week though... but i used the same kind

    i used 2 24" lights for awhile. i use 4 now. you might try more light.
    the media shouldnt be too big of a deal, but it should be changed incase of root issues. o_o repot it, look at the root structure and make sure it doesnt have root rot, and pot it in some new media. thats all i can really think of, maybe some better lighting. temp shouldnt be too big of an issue now that i think of it. ive seen hamata grown as a windowsill plant lol.

    lol, now that you mention it, they are 24"...lol

    i had it like 2-3 inches away from the light so the lighing was more intense...then the leaves starting turning yellow, so i moved it down to about 5-6 inches away...

    so frusterating...
    i need more media now...lol! what do you use for your nepenthes media? what's good, cause i'm all out of the coconut stuff...

    im not all too knowledgeable on neps. but peat/sphagnum/perlite, coco fiber/peat, peat/perlite, peat/perlite/vermiculite. are all mixtures ive heard of
    or some involving volcanic rock i believe...never tried that though.
    most of my neps are sphagnum/perlite grown.

    i would usually just do a peat/perlite mix, that's what the rest of my neps are growing in, but i'm pretty cautious with my hamata...

    i guess i could do a temporary peat/perlite just for the sake of checking it's roots....

    i think i'll go do that right now actually...lol

    i just checked the roots...they looked fine to me...some were dead, but there were many more healthy to make up for it.
