    Hairy Hamata

    Hi guys

    I am thinking about buying Hairy Red Hamata. I read somewhere that they are not easy to please. What are your experience with them?

    Thanks
    R

    They like cooler temps since they're ultra highlanders. So 40s-50s at night and 70s during the day, I believe. They also enjoy very, very high humidity at night, as with most ultra highlanders.

    supposedly they are fairly difficult, harder than regular hamata. Also, good luck finding one for sale, I have never seen one sold before.

    Pineapple, hamata actually isnt an ultrahighlander.

    Hamata isn't a UHLer. As myself and a few other growers have managed to grow them in household conditions with good success, UHL's like villosa and monticola wouldn't fair quite as well!
    Good Growing!

    yea, my hamatas thrive in night temps in the 60s and 50s, not UHL

    haha.. actually in my case im wrong, according to this site http://www.michaelkevinsmith.com/nep...ure-Chart.html
    UHL starts at 2000 meters, my seed grown hamata came from a 2100 meter site (well the seeds did)

    A plants range may extend into UHL range without being UHL itself, though the location of the plant themselves might make them more fussy in temperature range... A good example of this is N. burbidgeae which actually grows better as a intermediate, but extends into UHL range, there are also ampullaria which extend into the lower threshold of highland, though I would not consider them highland plants, but can probably take highland temps a bit better than their lowland counterparts...

    I know a few people personally who grow this hairy "hamata" and the plants are more difficult than hamata themselves... Personally I think we are looking at a new species that needs to be described... There are more differences in this plant that I see, than there are between N. tentaculata and N. nigra... I guess we will see in the future, but good luck finding one of these beauties.... I stupidly passed up the chance to get one 3 years ago, and regret it to this day... Oh well.

    Heli: I'm pretty sure it was collected it from one of the hairy specimens.
    Good Growing!
