    hamata isnt as touchy as its reputation says........its pretty hardy, mine sees 80*F(27*C) on a regular basis and seems unphased, wouldnt doubt it could handle higher...it is not an ultra highlander by any stretch of the imagination......bout the only thing i have seen to show it might be difficult is younger plants tend to be touchy about drops in humidity....if you dont mind spending the money for one for what might very well be an experiment i have a feeling you more than likely will have good success....if you were asking about villosa i would say your likely out of luck....but i think you have a good shot at success with hamata....

    N. hamata is fairly slow growing. That really nice specimen you may have seen is at least 5 years old. Humidity is important to a small plant. Just partially covering it with a clear cup can do the job. Leave some opening, however, or it will be really difficult to harden it off. Older plants handle lower humidity better. Also, it's best to find a partly sunny location, such as your west window, and leave it. Moving plants around from location to location is always a bad thing since they never have a chance to adapt to the microclimate. With a more challenging species you need to give them time.
