    Got mine in November from Wistuba, t was right out of TC, and sinceI got it, it hasn't grown or pitchered, until this month. It took 4 months in a terrarium to acclimatize, and is finally making its fist pitcher and next leaf. Hehe I hope mine makes it, they are quite picky when small in my experience.

    Grow it inside since you're basically in the same climate as me. Also, there's tons of info here. Do some searching if what these guys have said is not enough.

    @w03: I just got it, so hopefully it survives Aug/Sept/Oct. I keep the windows open during the summer so I get a nice cross-breeze at night from all the ocean air rolling in, so hopefully even if it does get in the 90's, the drop in temps at night will give it a good rest. If not...well, then then I'll ship it off for the summer or for good. I only keep plants that I find easy to grow. Oddly enough, the worst growers for me are spectabilis, ventricosa red, sanguinea orange, and inermis.

    I'm not very surprised about the spectablis and inermis not growing well here. Both are highlanders, and both, maybe more for inermis, suffer without the cool nights. I actually read about someone's inermis that completely stopped growing due to an unusually hot summer.

    However, I am VERY surprised that sanguinea orange and ventricosa red don't do well here... I thought they were adaptable intermediates!

    @Wolfn: I also read somewhere on terraforums that hamata really takes off if you can get it to the vining stage... it takes a really long time, but if you get there, you're pretty much in the clear.

    I think it's just me - even the macro is doing wonderfully.

    Wistuba deals with the import/export/customs paperwork himself when you order from him - and has a USA based forwarding person once the plants get into the country. I think the forwarding person is somewhere around Virginia or Georgia or something.

    Wistuba is selling the Hamatas for 30 Euros. That translates to roughly $40 for a Hamata


    However, I think I'll wait till I get a proper terrarium to grow everything before I buy one.
