    If anything it may be getting slightly less light because when I reorganized my terrarium I placed my largest N. burbidgeae so that it is shading the hamata a bit. The leaves on my hamata have been flushed red since shortly after receiving it. I always thought that it would resolve on its own as the plant adapted to my conditions, but it hasn't. I figured it wouldn't hurt to block a bit of light from it...

    Ugh, my poor hamata. It was doing so well. All of the pitchers it has were formed in my care...

    I have a few more neps growing well for me in the same conditions including N. glabrata and N. talangensis. I wonder if they will start to suffer as well...

    I'm sure they will if proper conditions are not met soon. N.hamata can be kind of a "canary in a coal mine". They react much faster to adverse conditions than many other species.

    Interesting. While I don't doubt the conclusions drawn & recommendations suggested by previous posters, since there is something not good going on, my experiences with N. hamata have been dramatically different. After receiving two little plants (sans roots), one stayed in my office tank & the other went into the basement. The one in the office saw temps in the 80's and often did not get below 70*F at night during the summer. Both plants grew at the same rate - which is the only reason I moved the upstairs plant to the basement - it outgrew it's home. N. glabrata has been a much pickier species than hamata for me ...

    Interesting, I have had absolutely no issue with growing glabrata or getting it to pitcher but I do have some trouble with hamata, my temps are much cooler than yours.

    i dont think your temps sound that extreme to cause the leaf deformity. i had some similar looking deformity on a N singalana last year and couldn't figure it out until i found a bug on one of the leaves. TF forum members helped me ID the bug as a thrip. i would look for something other than temps as a culprit.

    Oh no! I hope there are no bugs..

    Do you think that the growth point being wet for too long could have caused this?

    No, the growthpoint being wet would cause rot, I think a pest, high temps, or lower humidity might be the cause. If it is a pest then I would guess thrips or mites.
