    they are here Hamata clone 3 and clone 4

    I just got them to day , the order was placed back on march 3rd , I think now looking back it wasnt that long, but still it was very hard for me, I am like most people, I want it now , RIGHT NOW LOL.
    They look pretty healthy and well shipped, the box was even somewhat cool inside , due to the insulated box, ( cant spell styrofoam ), here they are and a video of me opening them up
    .
    Here they are in their new home in the highland terrarium, and all wrapped up in some fresh live sphagnum, along with some good quality dead LFS, little perlite, few pieces of charcoal ,and few pieces fir bark . Does that sound OK for them, its how i did the other two seed grown hamatas.

    I also won two seed grown Hamatas back in April, this one is growing very well , the other is doing well but not like this, this plant just had tiny seedling pitchers when i got it, and the three larger pitchers you see, have all developed since Ive had it, the other one still hasnt finished inflating the first one yet, and it looks like its going to be another seedling sized pitcher. but i do think its fine, just going to be slower than the other seed grown plant
    Here He is .

    Very nice, I have noticed that some seedgrown hamatas are much faster than others, mine went from 1.5in to 4.5in in one year.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    just means your clone happens to grow faster than some in TC.....has nothing to do with seed grown versus TC....has to do with clone versus clone......far more likely to run into a runt in seed grown than TC just due to the variability of the genetic material in play....

    Very nice, the two you won must have been from Davids batch he germinated, turning out to be very beautiful plants! and good luck with the wistuba clones with any luck your seedgrown plants will be female, and you already have a couple males there with you....

    Huh, I've always heard that most seed grown neps are more vigorous than thier TC counterparts....

    Growing plants from seed is a genetic crap shoot, for better or for worse; and you'll get some vigorous plants, some not so much so, and others of varying size and color.

    Generally speaking, TC plants are a bit more delicate (the leaves tend to be thinner in cross section and overly sensitive to humidity changes) in terms of cultivation; but the flip side is that you have a known quantity there, so far as a desired clone is concerned. Those clones were selected for a reason -- vigor, color, size -- and micro-propagated.

    Seed offers variety; TC offers surety . . .
