    Unhappy

    Hey all. Three days ago, I was thinking of buying a hamata (just as I have been for the last two years...). I looked on the internet, and much to my dismay, nobody in the U.S. (that I could find, anyway) had it in stock! In fact, the only distributors I can find are MT and a couple in Australia. Does anyone know of a U.S. source for the plant?

    No not gone.. just much harder to find on a regular basis until other suppliers like BExotics have them available once more. Not many US suppliers bring in plants from MT, which compounds the situation. N. hamata has always been in high demand and hard to keep in stock even before the BExotics issues.

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

    Yeah, you had it in stock for awhile, I saw. Why didn't I buy it?! Why?!?!?! CA Carnivores carries it from time to time, too. The thing with hamata is that not even the big wholesalers have it (except MT, of course).

    Any chance you'd be getting hamata in stock soon?

    Orchidweb.com is showing it in stock but overpriced at $100 for a 2.5 inch pot.

    Yep, I forgot about that. I don't pay attention to orchidweb anymore because things cost so much.

    Orchidweb is horrible. It costs like $20 for a D. capensis. I dont know, maybe not that much, but they are overpriced.

    It is easy to scam orchid growers because they are so used to paying exuberant prices for plants (nothing bad on them, I'm one, too)!
