    Wow Crystal and BigBella, you guys are really encouraging.
    With the info you have given me, I now believe I can grow a lot more species than I ever thought I could. (Especially after reading Crystal's conditions)
    I think I'll give hamata a try.

    Growing highland Nepenthes and others aren't that mysterious or difficult. Just give them their native climates in broad strokes. Consider for a moment that the bulk of ornamental plants available from nurseries most everywhere, are tropicals or subtropicals that somehow manage to survive in the states. I have personally made more mistakes than I can count growing Nepenthes and others over the years -- and yet they survive. My "attrition" rate stands at about 0.01 -- not including the very occasional ravages by my dog, Bella . . .

    No problem theyellowdart. I'm glad that I could be a bit of inspiration. Though remember what works for me may not work as well for you. I will encourage you to give the hamata a try though. You won't know until you give it a go .

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Read ICPS Newsletter Vol 32, Number 1, March 2003. A Novel Method for the Cultivation of N. villosa. This is probably the best way to provide the environment for this plant if you live in a warm/hot area for ultra-highlanders.

    Macamus, do you mind describing the method that is explained in that issue of the newsletter?
