Have you seen a Nepenthes that you just wanted soo bad but you couldn't get it because of its requirements? I know I have. That's what this thread is for; people like me sharing their experience's with "hard to grow" neps.

Now here's the format that were going to take (open to change):

Species/Hybrid with italics, bold, & underline.

How long you've had it for (doesn't have to be exact i.e I've had it for around a year

Picture (if possible)

Your description/notes!

(Not quite sure if this is the place to put this but oh well)

Yeah, its just been really good for me. I probably had to acclimate it for only a week. My conditions are:
50-60% RH
67~F(usually above 70F but its been getting cold here) night
75F day
Probably max of 4hours direct sun

I'd say its been a little bit picky at times. It took 2 weeks to acclimate. I will say, however, it has handled well into the 100's with RH plummeting down to 28. I've been updating its progress here.
Same conditions as Rob now.

I've had it since July of 2022

This one has been a bit tricky tbh. I had to acclimate it over the course of 4 weeks. However, once settled in, it grows at a pace of 3/4 of a leaf per month.
Same condition as Rob.

June of 2022

A very easy plant to care for simply put. It’s one of those plants that you can just throw in with your others with no acclimation period.
Same conditions as Rob.

Slow but steady. No pauses or fit’s just a happy little plant :)
Same conditions as Rob.

I try to stay with the more hardy ones and have never had issue. Most of mine stop growing pitchers in the winter but still grow, when i put them back outside they mass pitcher. This looks really great.

Cool idea! I unfortunately don't have any neps that are worth mentioning yet. The hamata's looking great. Might've asked this already, but where did you get it from?

Was it one of the cheaper ones or a more expensive one? It looks really nice and toothy at a young age and I might be interested in that specific clone. I know they have some for like $100 and others for $300. I'll go explore their website real quick.

Well, I don't know how to do anything but normal text here. But I have something I suppose.

N. clipeata
Had since June
I was worried about sticking it in household conditions to fend for itself, but it's been doing very well - never missed a beat. Acclimated quickly. I will say that the room is the most humid and warm one in the house so that may have something to do with it. Even so, it can't be much over 50% humidity or 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If it was, my sundews would be dewier and the pygmy sundews would be dormant.
The photo is a bit old but I haven't taken one recently. Nothing of note has changed about it, there's just newer leaves & pitchers now.
