    Thumbs up

    I think you guys will like this. Finally got a real upper hamata pitcher!!
    I am pretty surprised it turned out so big (about 8 inches), as you can see from the pictures it didn't start out as much. I know the green twist tie is pretty ugly, but hey, it worked right?
    What a bizarre, and impressive plant...

    Here is a pic of the lower pitcher for comparison.

    Whoa! You have one big hamata there! Great photos, and nice growing!

    What temperature range are you providing?

    Very nice Robin! Can you enlighten your time-lapse...IE: how long from pic one to a fully developed pitcher was it? In my expierience it takes a while for them to form. Orientation takes the longest.

    Thanks guys.
    Glad you like Capslock. Temps are about 58-80 right now. Between 48 - 80 for most of the winter . Almost time to hook up the AC for the year to keep the nighttime temps under 60. Keeping the days warm during the summer really seems to help. Humidity is alway between 75-80.

    Thanks Dustin,
    I'm gonna say about 4 months from 1st to last pic. I never thought it would end up looking like this. I thought at most it would form a little twisted dry dissapointment.
    I agree, it took 2 months just to figure out if it wanted to inflate or not!

    Glad you guys liked 'em

    Sweeeeeeeeeeeet. I wish mine would do that! Mines just a little baby.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Bravo! A very interesting sequence! If you've not already done so,
    it might be interesting to make a detailed log of the dates on which
    the pictures were taken, as well as other relevant information.

    I've considered doing this, too; perhaps I'll give it a shot. Personally,
    I think it would be very interesting to do a true time-lapse study
    of some of the more exotic species, such as N. lowii. I just don't
    have the space and equipment to do it right....
