    Hi to everybody
    Here is my Nepenthes hamata after the "bad" season (italian winter=short photoperiod and grew as windowsill plant on a south/east facing window). The plant never stopped to pitcher.



    Now the good season is started and we will see what will happen outdoor in my garden.

    Regards

    Looks great! That's a nep I'd like to have. Hairy lil' buggers. But you just gotta love those "teeth". Nice looking plant.

    Very cool having it survive on your windowsill! You must be lucky with the environment! How long do your pitchers last? I see a withered one there, mine last almost a year in controlled climate.

    Hi
    My plant says thanks to everybody

    The pitchers last around 5 or 6 months, the oldest could have lasted more, but I feed them with "bed-bugs" (the only insects available during winter) and they made the pitchers withered. Now I feed the pitchers with a solution of milk and distilled water (1:3) or sometimes with ants or wasps that are surely better insects as food .
    I agree that in a controlled climate the pitchers would last more, my Nepenthes hamata is exposed to humidity fluctuations from 50% to 90%.

    kind regards

    rajah
