    Whaaaaaat!!

    I guess it was only a matter of time... Now you want to talk about a plant that will be grossly overpriced...


    Anyway, the two plants are not exactly comparable. But hamata is generally cheaper, easier and quicker to grow, so there's that. But N. edwardsiana, when mature, is basically as awesome as a plant can get. (Save massive trees such as Sequoia, etc.)

    Maybe it's just my conditions but, I find edwardsiana to be easier and less finicky than hamata.

    Hmmm... Interesting.

    I guess it depends from plant to plant as well. The Wistuba clones are renound for being slow growing and finicky, but then I was just told stories of a clone that someone grows of N. hamata that is supposedly "as vigorous as ventricosa". Soooo... Get your hands on one of those!

    Last month i received a baby hamata from wistuba, and i have already 2 new leaves, and 2 tiny pitchers growing, its very vigourous, at least for now. Maybe the plant will slow down with age.
