    Thanks for the kind comments. I originally started the thread because I'd heard so many people saying that N. hamata was a very difficult plant to grow - especially when very young. Both of these clones were small T/C babies without any roots at all when I received them. I stuck them in media & hoped for the best (kinda figuring that they would melt away since they had no roots). Obviously I was pleasantly surprised with their growth (& hope that it continues). So far, they're very enjoyable plants & even though the teeth aren't mature, I'm still pretty amazed at what nature can conjure up ....

    Sorry for this confusion. I received them in Jan of this year & the most recent pics are in Aug - - - little bit longer than 2 months.

    Yup - one in a tank in my office & another in a tank in the basement. I'd planned to move the upstairs plant to the basement once summer hit with the higher temps but so far it has been handling them well (unlike some of my South American dews & utrics).

    Yup - this was my 1st Nep (technically the 2nd - but 1st was over 15 years ago & died after a few months). Enjoyment of these guys has prompted me to add 2 others (an aristo & black truncata). I hope they grow as well....
    All the best,

    Among the best looking small N. hamata that I have seen. Very well done Ron.

    I've had a note on my 'ToDo' list for a long time to take some updated pics of my 2 N. hamata plants - since they've been producing full-size lowers for a while. The overall pics are a bit tough to see because each plant is in a 10 gal community tank. For the 1st one - that's a 'sort-of' since I'm tearing that tank down and moving the remnants to a larger unit (finally).

    Here's the 1st plant (the D. adelae should provide some perspective)(the moss-covered brick on the left formerly had pots of D. ascendens perched on it)(extra points go to the eagle-eyed person who can spot a U. longifolia leaf - telling me that i cannot eradicate it from this tank)


    Here's some of the individual pitchers - sharing some space with D. adelae (sharp-eyed people may recognize the pitcher on the right as the one which received a wasp for dinner one night ...)


    Tilt-back lid...


    Cozy...


    .... another...


    Dark pitcher w/ deformed mouth & little lid...


    The 2nd plant in another 10 gal tank. Sadly, I've never gotten around to transplanting this one to a larger pot. Somewhere under all of those pitchers, there is a 2.5" pot (the one above was transplanted into a 6" pot a long time ago).

    Some of the other occupants: 8:30 - U. humboldtii, 10:00 D. prolifera, 11:00 - D. ascendens, Serra de Ponta Grossa, Parana State, Brazil, 1:00 D. graomogolensis, Itacambira, Minas Gerais, Brazil, ~6:00 - wispy pieces are from D. filiformis 'all red', Washington County, FL.

    More & more teeth ....

    Wow, looking fantastic. I've never tried, but it is my understanding N. hamata can be pretty difficult. You seem to be doing a great job with them, they're gorgeous. I really like the picture with the D. adelae, too. What a cool mix of plants.

    Ron... that was beautiful. Thanks for posting! I love those community tanks - are they separate pots of plants with moss all grown in inbetween, or just a big pile of sphag around the N. hamata with various cute dews popping up?
