    Please don't make replys like this to these types of threads. Folks are posting pictures of their prize plants to share them with others. Not to receive requests from folks wanting to get something from them. If they should happen to have something to offer I am sure it would be posted in the trade forum.
    Thanks,
    Tony

    ps.. I think your also not realizing the years of growing and difficulty and expense to get a N. hamata to flower.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thanks for all your kind words regarding the pictures! I love this genus, and it is a pleasure to be able to share a few images now and again.

    It's a mature specimen. I have not measured it, but would say that the vine is 15 to 20 cm long. It's a very easy plant to grow, and fairly rapid, too.

    Honestly, I don't know. I've only ever heard it referred to as N. mirabilis var. Rowanae.

    Actually, no, I think that most of the photos are not very good. The space in which I grow many of my plants is very limited, and it is therefore often difficult to get a good shot lined up, good lighting, etc.

    Thanks, Tony!

    BTW, if it's not evident from the photograph, the difference between clones of N. lowii from different locations is significant. I have several from G. Trusmadi, and they differ noticeably from the clones from G. Kinabalu or G. Mulu, especially regarding the form of the upper pitchers. Now, I've not seen this species in the wild, and therefore cannot comment on the variation within individual populations. Perhaps others who have seen wild populations of this species would care to comment?

    neps,
    Here's the article I read that suggests N. rowanae is it's own species:
    N. rowanae discovery
