    I grow my hamata on windowsill, temps get to 78 to 80 during the day and at night it goes down to 68. I've had this plant for almost 3 months and is growing bigger leaves. I have no idea what humidity is on since I just keep it as a regular house plant. I do mist it in the morning and right before I go to bed. Here is a picture of when I first received it and how it looks now. The recent picture was taking this morning. Hope it helps.

    Do you have windows?

    Monitor your inside & outside temps. When the outer temps drop below the inner - fire up a fan in a window. Get up around 5-6am & close the window. During the hot summer months, this is what I typically do.

    If your night temps outside the house drop into the fifties, could you not at least put the hamata(s) into a sealed container and set them outside at night, just to experience a decent temperature drop? Sure, it will be more work on your part, but it will likely mean the difference between utter failure and stunning success.

    @favian: don't be surprised if you find under those conditions that your plant behaves the same as that singalana hybrid you traded away: lots of leaves but no pitchers. After 3 months you should have seen at least one pitcher form. 68F night just don't cut it.

    I do have windows, but the logistics in moving the air is a problem. The windows are large and slide sideways and not up. What media are the successful growers using?
