A few of the N. hamata hybrids, updated photos added today. Some of these hybrids are more interesting (IE more successful) than others, but all are intriguing in their own unique ways. Most have very soft pitcher bodies, a trait (unfortunately) inherited from N. hamata, and only the N. singalana crosses show pronounced teeth; the other species tend to dilute the toothy peristome trait significantly. The least toothy of all is the N. spectabilis hybrid, but I really like the extremely contrasty body markings that both species have contributed to the plant. It is one of those plants that doesn't show off its charms well in a photo; best seen up close and in person.
The most striking of the lot (in my opinion) is the N. singalana X hamata "hair red" variant, as the pitcher coloring and peristome toothiness is most intense in this one. This is going to be an astonishing plant when it matures!

I love the pitcher shape of the sing x rhh. The talangensis x hamata is interesting but not my favorite. I really love your clone of spath x hamata, nice and dark. Mines a little more green. My sing x hamata and aristo x rhh should be here tomorrow. Not sure how the aristo hybrid will turn out but with rhh as a parent I'm pretty sure it will be a unique plant. Will post pics soon!
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
