    is anyone out there growing robcantleyi x hamata or hamata x robcantleyi? I would absolutely love to see any photos and hear what you think of this one. I just got a hamata x robc ordered, the reverse was out of stock or I may still be trying to decide which one to get hah

    I actually have both hybrids. They're nice and pretty easy to grow. I actually got scale on the rob x hamata so I haven't had many recent pitchers.

    Wow! So glad to see it keep the hamata ribs and some teeth now just praying it gets relatively tubby Robc pitchers with maturity

    Do you get hard or soft scale? Have never had scale get to my neps (knock on wood) but had hard scale on cactus years back and they were so hard to fully fight off left nasty scars

    I'm not positive but I believe it was a type of hard scale. It took a few treatments to kill all of them.

    little update now that I have some pitchers inflating. Unfortunately The growthpoint was snapped in shipment on this ventricosa x hamata. Curious how long it typically takes a young plant like this to activate a new growth point and get back on track?

    some seedling i bought as edwardsiana and villosa. obviously too young to confirm so either I have some great plants or lesson learned not to do this again

    first order of seed arrived, got them sown into rinsed sphagnum. first mix is supposedly lowii, reinwardtiana(HL), edwardsiana 'Green', fusca, veitchii(HL). the second mix is supposedly hirsuta 'Black', reinwardtiana(HL), edwardsiana 'Gold', fusca, veitchii(HL)

    and my ventricosa that lost its growth point due to a frost is sending out at least 4 basals simultaneously. should I allow all to grow or select 2 so the growth rate isn't slowed too much?
