    Thanks for the comments, again. I'm very happy with the way the plant has been growing.

    elarwhis,
    The humidity fluctuates. So far reading have been around these:

    Winter humidity: 30 - 50% (lower humidity in the day. Furnace does not run much, sun shines in the room where I grow the plants. I have a humidifier on my furnace set to around 48%)

    Winter / Fall temps: I keep the house cool. Heat set to around 65 degrees. (humidified air feels warmer then dry air) During the day it can hit mid 70's with the sun shinning in the room where I grow the hamata. Nights drop to around 64 degrees.

    Spring / Summer / Fall humidity: 40 - high 80%. (Windows open and such)

    Spring / Summer temps: I would say low 70's to mid 80's. (I usually have the A/C set around 73)


    Starman,
    I'm not sure I would not try growing a hamata without a humidifier on the furnace. My humidity was 15 - 24% without a humidifer during the winter. I have a nep that showed humidity stress last year before I installed the humidifer, which is tougher then a hamata.
    I'm not sure that the plant is as nice as a terrarium / greenhouse hamata. I think the pitchers narrow a little at the top compaired to others I have seen.


    Phyrex,
    I will definitely keep updates posted. These were a new size in the "teeth", much larger then previous pitchers.

    Rubbish, it looks just as good, one of the most colourful and pretty hamatas that I have ever seen.
    Sure, those greenhouse specimens may be bigger, but they arnt usually that colourful.

    Starman, one plant is not proof.
    Windowsill environments differ a LOT from each other and most of them (especially the ones which have heating under them so the humidity is extremely low) arenít suitable. So you canít just say all plants grow well on windowsills just because you have seen a few that do.

    Are you trying to sell windowsills or something? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Wow that's amazing! N. hamata in a window!
    I can barely keep anything alive in my house environment. Only Amorphophallus and Alocasia will live in the dim and dry conditions of my house, Neps are almost dead unless they're in my special chambers. I'm jealous! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Ditto phyrex. It is an uncontrolled environ. My N. x ventrata doesn't seem to mind but it isn't maturing any pitchers in this weather either. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
