The price of N.Hamata is falling. Here in Europe you can get a small TC plant for about 30 Euros.
I have had one for about 4 months now and have been keeping it very humid in a terrarium under artificial light. Growth has been slow but it seems quite happy.
After consulting with a Nepenthes expert I know , I have concluded that it has not been getting sufficient light, so have upped the brightness to see if I can speed its growth up.
The requirement for high humidity is supposed to apply mostly while the plant is young. Once it is a few years old, supposedly it can be hardened off somewhat, although I am some way from that yet.
Other than the humidity, it is I believe quite a straight forward plant to grow.

It is of course a highland plant so expects to experience a drop in temperature overnight.
I take it that this is not a problem for you in your terrarium?
