I know it's not a true hamata, but it's one of my many hybrid hamata's popping out pitchers!

I...erm..made a bit of an embarising mistake here, that upper was indeed made in my care, but I forgot that I haven't had that plant for 6 months just yet, so I can't be judged on it, I do, however, have a different canidate, and this is the one I want you guys to vote for....so.... *drumroll*..... N.SPECTABILIS X TALANGENSIS!

Unfortunately, I don't know the exact pedigree of this Leilani hybrid, but I suspect N. maxima and N. spathulata are in its breeding. Whatever it is, this makes beautiful pitchers and it is one of my favorite hybrids.

Finally ....

Similar to my U. endresii backstory, it seems like I've been waiting forever for my N. inermis to produce an upper. Ever since I got the plant, it always inflated a pitcher on each new leaf (lowers) on both the main vine & a basal. However, once it started to vine, it completely stopped inflating pitchers. After several leaves, it started to inflate one but then aborted it. It then skipped several more leaves before eventually sending one down in a very inaccessible area. I can't move the pitcher without untangling pitchers from 4-5 other plants - so the following pics are through glass & far from optimal (my apologies) - but I wanted to document that an upper was finally made before I started to chop the vine for cuttings. Now that the obligatory excuses are over - here's the pics ...
