    KPG's Nepenthes

    I guess I'll take the plunge and start an ongoing thread.

    Starting with some "hanataphilia":

    N. hamata "undisclosed site B"


    N. hamata BE-158 (N. singalana on the right)


    N. hamata Wistuba clone 3


    New pitcher on N. Hamata RH


    Plus, a recently opened pitcher on N. macrophylla BE


    Cheers,
    KPG

    loving them all especially the red hairy. looks a bit like a villosa crossed with hamata!

    are they squatter than regular hamata pitchers or is it just the angle of the shot misleading me?

    cheers

    Great photos! Love the pitcher body to opening ratio on macrophylla.

    Nepenthes hamata can get pretty bristle-covered! Great plants there!
    Just a hybrid that popped in my head: Nepenthes hamata x rafflesiana.

    Here's a link to the only photo I could find of one:

    The plant leans too much towards the N. rafflesiana parentage for my taste.

    Yes, those I have seen tend to be a bit more squat, and quite a bit smaller than a "typical" Nepenthes hamata. The RH hamatas are striking, but I enjoy
    the other hamata more. Much easier to grow, and the pitchers are more striking, to my eye.
