Does anyone grow Nepenthes hamata (Gunung Katopasa)? I'm assuming the plants he's currently selling aren't seed grown, but on Wistuba's website it says "The first few plants we release are seedlings. Every plant is different! Very limited supply."
Does anyone have any input? Of course I would be interested in a seed-grown N. hamata, but I'm confused. I emailed him about it, but no reply... I am growing the Clone 1 hamata, and I'm not sure how big of a difference there is between the Gunung Katopasa and Gunung Lumut form.
Avery: I got one last november, and i talked a bit about it with andreas. From what he said, all the hamata are from seeds, growed invitro. Mine are seedlings for sure, unique genetic. The katopasa is more green and more hairy. I think its the latest discovered hamata. From what i read on wistuba.com, the pitcher is quite different, but still 'hamata style'. A beauty
But its very hard to tell because i dont grow that clone.
Dennis: i need all the plant listings by next week-end, because i have to check if all the plants are available before andreas left for his expedition, because many of you guys want the same species, and i need all the payments by july 24th, the day i will order the plants at wistuba
I'm confused, what N. hamata are you growing? From what I understand, clone 1, 2, 3, and 4 are just that- clones. Did you purchase the N. hamata, Katopasa? If it is in fact a seed grown hamata, then surely that's quite a deal.
Oh interesting. Thanks. That's what I thought- so to be clear, my understanding is that all "Clone 1" plants are genetically identical, and similarly, all "Clone 3" plants are also genetically identical, etc... Now, my question is- are all of the currently offered Katopasa hamata's genetically unique (grown in vitro from seed), or has he run out of the seed grown plants and is instead offering genetically identical clones from location Gunung Katopasa?
I would love to see your two plants when you get a chance!
For your specific question, i will ask andreas, because im not 100% sure, but IMHO all the hamata he sell right now are from seeds. So no identical clones, just unique genetics. For example, all the clones 1 are not real clones. Its just to keep a track when all the seeds are from the same plant. But like a said, im not 100% sure, i will ask more info.
Ok, thank you! Do let me know what you discover. I think you may be mistaken, but if I knew for sure, I wouldn't have asked! As far as I know, all of the current N. hamata clones (1-4) are male, and genetically identical (within clone line).
EDIT: Nice plants! It'll be nice to compare our clone 1's, as we got them at the same time. This IS a competition
