Hamata rescue . . .

While admittedly not much to look at for the time being, here is a vial of Nepenthes hamata, from 2011 seed, in a media to -- successfully as it turns out -- promote some root growth; all too frequently an issue with the genera. Unfortunately, the cultures experienced an unforeseen spike in heat when a fan burned out, while I happened to be away back in April (yet another reason to, once again, declare war on Korea). Thankfully, within the last month or so, new growth has appeared, just visible at the crown. As an aside, what may appear to be contamination on the "plantlet," is simply condensation on the container's exterior and a slacker of a photographer . . .
