Update: 3rd pitcher. Wow! This plant is pretty vigorous in my opinion.
It's so cute! Great job growing it.
<Heli> How are you guys losing your hamatas?
<Brokken> Heli: The hamburglar.
Thanks! Yes, I would be very happy to see pics of yours. Wow 6 inches. I can't wait until mine gets a little girth. I just fed it for the first time the other day. I hope it helps.
hey dash I have a sibuyanensis x hamata as well. Any pitchers form on that one yet I'm waiting patiently for mine to start...
Yes, this one is pretty vigorous as well. This one I treat just like hamata and it pitchers profusly. I need to repot it soon.
I feed it with freeze dried flies or a dilute solution of fish fertilizer. Whatever is on the menu.
nice. as of right now I'm growing mine under lowland-intermediate conditions. I know these are less than ideal conditions but this is all have for now....hoping for the best...what about yourself? Are you growing it under strict highland conditions?
Not when I first received it. When I first received it I grew it in intermediate conditions and it still pitchered.
I am treating it as more of a highland now and it seems to be responding a little better. I would imagine it can grow well in both though but I haven't had it long enough to discuss authoritatively (6 months).
You might ask one of the expert nepenthes growers lurking around. Perhaps start a new thread asking for advice. Honestly, there are many people I would value the opinion of above my own.
