    Neato! What's the leaf to pitcher ratio for the N. Hamata? It looks like the pitchers are bigger than the leaves!

    Hi Snowyfalcon, um i dunno what the ratio is on that...Tony might be able to help out on that.

    Eric, yup photo credit to me and plant credit to Tony. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I must say I am always very impressed every time I walk into his greenhouse.

    That's a nice N. hamata! I wonder how tall is that? Mine is 60 cm/2 feet tall now but growing tipped over at about a 15-20 degree angle (now supported by bamboo stakes and tendrils grabbing things) having the stem tipped over has activated three of the nodes along them stem to starting new vines. I do notice that the stem on that big N. hamata is green while mine is black as pitch. It may just have something to do with light as the dorsal side of the midrib vein on my N. hamatas leaves are black too. I just love N. hamata! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Snowy, the lower leaves on N. hamata are larger than the climbing leaves by almost twice the size-many plants enlarge their upper leaves! Lower rosette leaves on mine are 18 cm with up to 20 cm pitchers the upper leaves are only 10-12 cm long but the upper pitchers are said to still get to 20 cm... we'll see. So far mine hasn't inflated the upper pitcher tendrils, I'm anxious to see those infamous hamata uppers!

    Edit: Oops, I forgot to mention how nice those other plants look and how nice the photos are (thanks for being my wandering eyes Dustin-since I can't see Tonys place in person)! I really dig that N. Trusmadiensis - How big might that be? Is it the only one? I have Trusmadiensis x veitchii which is certainly showing zero by way of "hybrid vigor". In one year and it might have settled in by now. I'm wondering if maybe the potting media is foul, it doesn't stink and dries out easily enough but came potted so I never fussed with it...

    Anyway, great pix!

    I'd guess the Trumadiensis pitcher is around 8cm (3 inches tall) The plant is about 13-15cm (5-6in.) across. Didn't have a ruler so I'm just guessing form my memory earlier today.

    Excellent photos, especially the hamata.
    I have a nep doing the cannibalism thing(well not quite, it's the same plant). I noticed a tendril snuck in another pitcher of my giant red amp, and it's too snug to pull out, lol.
