    Nepenthes hamata: Some Seed-grown Variations . . .

    There has been some recent discussion about morphological variability -- even within species -- and the occasional difficulty with identification. While that is certainly not the case here, I have photos of two pots of the very same seed-grown batch of Nepenthes hamata -- grown under identical conditions, side by side; regardless of the amount of light afforded it, that second pot will not color-up any further than that, and remains, for the most part, a lightly-mottled lime green -- but with a more pronounced, larger peristome. That first plant produced two basals within eighteen to twenty months of germination and is far more vigorous . . .

    Thanks all . . .

    They're from late 2006-07 (some frighteningly took a few months to germinate). I have another somewhat larger plant but it most closely resembles that heavier-pigmented N. hamata. The real secret with these suckers seems to be keeping them cool at night; and it almost always falls into the low fifties and lower in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    If only I could move just a couple miles North. You San Franciscans hog all the fog!
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
