WIKI: Nepenthes hamata is a tropical pitcher plant endemic to Sulawesi, where it grows at elevations of 1400–2500 m above sea level. The specific epithet hamata is derived from the Latin word hamatus, meaning “hooked”. It describes the appearance of the highly developed peristome teeth of this species.
