    Take advice from Paul on all genera. He's got the greenest thumb I've ever seen!

    Guys, nepenthes eddy is no longer sold out. On myrmephytum.de (wistuba.com is dead) you can order one, but you must act very fast.

    BUT, hamata is still number one nepenthes for me :P (you can order one from the same website) !

    They are both spectacular species but there really is no contest... lets just says size maters!

    This pitcher was over 20inches.

    Although I will say under limited space N. hamata does shine. The number living pitchers on one plant is always stunning.

    I know its a noob question, what is the perfect light for a hamata? I have a n.hamata clone 1 from wistuba and under a single 56w, 48inches 5600k T5 tube, all the leaves now have a reddish color. I also noticed that the new leaves are always smaller and smaller...

    Maiden, how is the plants health overall? Is it pitchering? Smaller and smaller leaves makes me think your temps could be too warm for N. hamata. The leaves should be bigger each time, even if they are under bright light, my N. hamatas are under 220W T5 lights and they are red but not getting smaller.

    In situations where HL Neps are too warm the new leaves will be smaller each time until the growing point is non existent. It is entirely reversible if you can provide the cooler day and night temps you need to remedy this condition.

    I agree with swords completely. Perhaps you could raise the light a few centimeters to help cool it off, and the red "tan" should start to fade, if that's what you want.
