    Growing Nepenthes hamata on a windowsill

    Does anybody else grow this outside of a terrarium or greenhouse?

    Specifically on a windowsill?

    Any thoughts on this?

    There is a guy on facebook that has been growing hamata as a windowsill plant for years. He has several that have produced very long vines. https://scontent-b-sea.xx.fbcdn.net/...33&oe=552DCC2B

    The only hamatas that can be grown like that are seed grown miracles/mysteries of nature.
    Youve seen the thread where the pitchers of somebodys hamata basically went mutant flesh pile from hot nights havent you?

    I've not tried it, but I am sure it all depends on where in the world your windowsill is located.

    Ya I agree with Dexenthes. I mean, no way Hamata can thrive if it's in say in Botswana or Nimibia

    Perfectly feasible in the Uk.I grow mine open to house humidity as low as 40% under flo lights.Am sure it would grow twice as quickly in more ideal conditions but it grows and increases in size
