    Hi,

    finally also my N. hamata has produced an bigger and more mature pitcher. My plant origins from Andreas and I still think this clone is different to the plants originating from Malesiana tropicals (i.e. Josh's and Dustin's N. hamata). The peristome of this clone is not as compressed and the shape of the pitcher is different.

    I know the first picture is a bit oversized, but the file size with about 100k should be OK.

    Cheers Joachim

    Wow, the first picture is spectacular! Great work with the camera, and nice plants too of course. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yes indeed Joachim,

    That is a wholly different clone, because mine is nowhere near that furry on the pitcher sides and there are fewer teeth on the more rounded mouth of your plant. My count is 43-45 teeth on the peristome in your first picture and there are at least 61-63 teeth on mine.



    The N. hamata photos shown by Rob Cantley also display a much wider peristome with fewer teeth as we see on your plant and in the Flora Malesiana drawing.

    Very nice Joachim! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I've also attached 2 photos of my most recent pitcher that has very similar peristome coloration to yours. In time though it will turn to black like Josh's plant, but since my plant is beginning to vine this may be a step towards intermediates perhaps.

    I think the clone I got from Wisuba is more like yours Joa. It's amazing though, how the plant is only 1" dia., with half inch pitchers, yet the teeth are so prominant and visible. Why did nepenthes develop teeth anyway? To keep out small lizards?

    wasn't it to keep out small monkeys from grabbing the contents of the pitcher out? the monkeys can reach in, but when they try to pull their hands out, they get stuck and fall in. i don't think there were many sightings of monkeys in pitcher, so this theory may be false [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] .
