    Hi to everybody [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    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. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Regards

    I too grow my hamata as a windowsill plant and it also pitchers non stop.

    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 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    My plant says thanks to everybody [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    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 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] .
    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
