    Hamata Help!

    Hey guys,

    Well I'm usually not the person to be worried about his plants dying. But recently my Hamata has been bringing that ugly paranoid side out of me.

    heres the deal, The Hamata was doing well, for a month, because the temps were highland. However, my Hamata has been though some hard times with the temps going up here in the Canadian summer.

    I moved a week ago, and finally got a central air apartment, I once again have perfect Highland conditions.

    However I fear it might be too late for my Hamata, heres a pic that speaks for itself.



    as you can see the latest leaf is smaller. I see another leaf coming, I hope its normal... any ideas? what do you think? will my baby survive, i'm quite devastated right now... I know these plants are much tougher than they look, but its hard to get past the paranoia...

    so tell me what you think...

    Since the growing point still looks fine, you'll be ok. It just needs to setting into the conditions.

    Heh. It sure is ugly. Don't worry, it's fine...Leaves don't last forever. So after changes, some leaves are probably bound to die. Plus, the three youngest leaves looks perfectly normal. Just give it time.

    Dude....it can come back. Just ensure that it gets high humidity and good highland conditions. Trust me!! I had my hamata make a comeback from even worse looking than that.

    Which N. hamata is this? We have discussed this before but I don't think the temperatures are/were the cause. It looks to me like some sort of pest and/or perhaps a root problem but I am leaning more towards a pest (mites or thrips) because of the funky tiny little new leaf. Is this the one you posted a while ago that looked odd and sprayed and then grew more normally?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
