    Hi All,

    Thought people might be interested to see this stunning new variety of N. hamata which I recently photographed in Sulawesi. It comes from a mountain quite far away from the type locality of N. hamata and shows that this species has a good bit of geographical variation throughout its range.



    Compared with the variety from Gunung Lumut (which is probably the source of all the plants currently in cultivation?), the pitchers of this new form are more robust and entirely red with a dense coating of rusty brown hairs. Also, the bristles on the lid are not as numerous nor branched. In all other vegetative respects it matches N. hamata very well.

    Best regards,
    Ch'ien

    Wow Chi'en, that is an absolutely stunning variant, and your photography is superb, as usual. Were there any uppers around when you found this plant?

    OH MY GOD!!!!!! You've got to be kidding me. It looks like what one would expect the hybrid cross edwardsiana x hamata would look like. Chien you never stop to amaze us. How absolutely breathtaking. You must have been so elated to have come across that. One can only imagine. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Now I have a new favorite Nepenthes.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Superb! Are there any plans to introduce this variety to
    cultivation? I surely hope so!

    Thanks for sharing this information!

LOL

    I have never seen a Nepenthes with that much hair on the pitchers! They should name it N. Hamata "Fuzzy"
