ElectrCarnvrs: unfortunately assumptions have to be made, just so that the adviser knows what needs to be covered and what doesnt. nobody likes giving advice that should have worked, but failed because of something that wasnt mentioned because it was assumed. setting up a growlist most definitely helps us gauge your skill level (what plants are you already familiar with) as well as a photo thread (how well you grow your plants--what tweaking needs to be done). everybody wants to help you succeed here, but we cant unless we have preliminary info to give you advice that is relevant.
my favorite quote: "please dont assume....because it makes an *** out of u and me.
but to make my post relevant:
i currently grow both hamatas, typical and red hairy, and can say that red-hairy is definitely the pickier of the two. high humidity of 75-80% will ensure the proper development of the pitchers. a combination of low humidity and higher temperatures (80-85F) will cause the leaves and pitchers to deform, and if not corrected will result in permanent deformation....how do i know this?
oh the things i do for this community. i would also recommend growing this plant in bright but not direct lighting as the pitchers do not appreciate excessive light.
best of luck
