    Ideal temperatures for N.hamata would be 75F days and 55F nights, but they can take day temps up to 80F and night temps up to 65F for a few months here and there.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    50F all the time?......you will need to raise the day temperature to at least 70F for that to work.

    N. hamata isnt a UHL. adult specimens can be grown in intermediate/highland conditions....but im betting you wont have an adult specimen...humidity is much more important, but since you got that covered, im not going to harp about that.

    Although many people have whined about how sensitive their N. hamata's are, I did not find that to be an issue at all with the two small rootless plants I received - they both grew like weeds from day 1. In my meager experience, both N. aristolochioides and N. jamban are much more finicky plants (especially the jamban). Neither of my hamata's even slowed down when summer warmed up their growing spaces a bit (unlike the pouty other two...).

    As always - ymmv. Best of luck with your new baby...
    All the best,

    Yeah, I don't find N. hamata to be a difficult one, mine is going through humidity of 30% or less in the day and it is growing and pitchering gorgeously... eitherway I'm lookng for a way to increase the humidity, havin' a little more is always good.
