    George, I use 1 2 tube 2 ft long flurescent fixture, but mine also is in a south window in the terrarium and gets lots of natural full sunlight so the red most liekly is intensified by both light sources.

    Nate, thanks! Most everyone that sees it says it is a beauty Rajah.

    NG,

    I must admit I am suprised. That plant looks very healthy, and I would not change anything at this point. Do you grow all your highlanders in live sphagnum?

    Regards,

    Joe

    Hi Joe, most of my highlanders are in living sphagnum but the newest ones I get I put in regular long fiber moss then adapt them to pure living moss. Here's my Hamata growing in pure living sphagnum. Sorry for the large pictures too.

    N.G., well that makes alot of sent with the darker coloration. i should move mine out of the bathroom sometime soon then. there is a window in there but, its the defused kind where ya can't see threw. so not to much sun light comes from it.

    actaully with the hamata being that big of a picture brings up another question. how sharp are thoughts fangs points or are they just like the pitcher paper thin and easy to break

    George, do you grow your hamata on an open (no extra humidity) widowsill, or do you grow it in a terrarium or with a plastic bag over it?

    Hi,

    N. hamata does grow in mossy forest in the wild, so it is no surprise it does grow best in Sphagnum. Andreas wrote he had big trouble rooting N. hamata last year. They only started to root well after placing the seedlings out of TC in a compost with a high percentage of Sphagnum.

    Dustin, was this N. hamata pitcher grown under your conditions or is it still one which the plant already had when getting it from Tony?

    HI George, the spines are not very strong but they are sharp. The peristome feels like a row of knive blades when you run your finger across it.

    Joachim, the pitcher was formed in Tony's greenhouse, but I have a nice pitcher coming and will post a picture once it opens fully (of course it won't be colorful b/c it will be brand new) but it will be "my" pitcher.
