    The reddish N. clipeata is related to the Clip-1 plants. They came with the same batch of plants and are from the same source. Two of the plants I have look like this while the majority look like the big plants. I suspect that the original cell cultures contained more than one clone. Suffice it to say there is alot of controversy over Clip-1.

    Yes Joachim they are grown hard. It is funny that newly acquired plants often get smaller in my greenhouse for a while. While at the same time pitchers are getting larger!

    Yes Swords the highlands and lowlands are all thrown together right now.. and it is more of an intermediate setup although I do cater more to the highlands. The lowland plants are not very fond of me during the winter months.

    Thanks for your input on air movement Rob. Something to think about when I put up a new greenhouse and split up the lowland and highland plants.

    Rob,

    it is a bit difficult to make a judgement on the N. clipeata from this picture alone. The lower half of the pitcher in the foreground seems not to match the globose shape one would expect from a N. clipeata. Also the leaf base and the petiole of the newest leaf before the flower stalk does not look like N. clipeata from this angle. The colour of the petiole is not as red as one would expect from a plant grown under good conditions. (Of course I know, colours are normally not used to identify plants.)

    More details from different parts of the plant would definitely help in identifying it. From first sight I would vote against a pure N. clipeata - it does look more like a complex hybrid to me.

    Tony,

    Are you growing the hamata in your standard mix(isn't it something like 1:1:1 LF sphagnum/cocohusk chips/perlite)?
    Regards,

    Joe

    Joe,
    Yes with a little peat moss added. So I guess you can say my standard mix is now fine coconut husk chips, perlite, Sphagnum, and peat... roughly 1:1:1:1. The peat binds the other ingredients together into a more 'soil like' mix but it is still very well drained and aerated. I have found N. hamata to like it pretty wet at the roots but well aerated. One of the few that does well in straight Sphagnum for me. I don't pot much in pure Sphagnum though because of the cost.. something I have to watch on a large scale.

    Tony,

    Yes, it's the plant that leaps to mind when you mention sphagnum growing Nepenthes. I have had mine in a baggie for...over two years, watered only twice! It does not grow as rapid as most suggest, but it is amazing to see it in a baggie like this. I will get another before I think about removing it, becasue I don't want to upset it's delicate balance and I want to grow one in a more normal manner. The sphagnum in there grows nicely, and I had to trim it away once.
    Wouldn't a tray of sphagnum grow well in your greenhouse with the plants? I would think you could supply yourself with live stuff.
    The addition of peat to your mix makes some sense. I have heard that story from several growers that use many course ingredients, how adding peat gives it that "Soil-like" quality, while still allowing the drainage and "fluffiness" to the mix.

    Regards,

    Joe
