Nepenthes hamata is my favorite nep there is. The beginning of July I decided to spend the money to add this plant to my very small nep collection.
The plant had 5 or 6 nice pitchers when I got the plant. Since I grow this plant as a windowsill plant, in a matter of days the pitchers all dried out do to the humidity difference. N. hamata without any pitchers was a horrible site for the time it was like this. Since then the plant has adjusted very well and has been pitchering well for me. I have noticed that the forming pitchers have slowed down in growth rate, I guess from the shortened daylight, but still inflating slowy compaired to the fall.
Here is a picture of the plant and the latest pitcher it has made for me. (2 or 3 days old)
I got it from Tony Paroubek. Thanks Tony.
