    N. hamata questions

    Hi everyone,

    I have read that N. hamata is a slow grower but how slow is it?

    Is a leaf formed every 3-4 weeks normal?

    And does the plant produce the next leaf but takes it own time to produce the pitcher on the previous leaf?

    TIA!
    Cindy

    From the grace of someone very generous I have three baby hamatas (it was from one TC pot which I divided). I would say they are slow, but never paid that close attention to them. I will say that when I walk by them I notice something happening. Of course I don't look at them daily, but when I do stop by or water I can usually see something new happening.

    But perhaps it is my growing method. Right on the shelf with everything else. No fridge, no fog machine, no cooling system. Just there under the lights next to a maxima.

    while its a seedgrown hamata, the growth rate shouldnt be that much different than a regular tc hamata

    lol cindy
    i by no means have a magic windowsill or magic growrack, but hamata is a very quick and easy grower.
    my TC one almost died, and bounced right back...which i later traded off because i wanted more plants....and i have the seedgrown one hahahaha. but on average my plant puts out a leaf and a half a month, and a pitcher ever 3 or so weeks. oddly, Ron West's seedgrown plants have all reached about 3" and mine is only about 2" but mine is pitchering, his arent yet.

    SirKristoff,

    I live in year round hot weather (75F-95F) which makes growing N. hamata a real challenge without air-conditioning. From the posts I now know that my plant is growing at a decent speed and it means that at least it is quite happy with the recent weather which is cooler and more humid. I don't have any special set-up for it and it is sitting at the balcony together with my other lowland plants.
