    Ah, I suppose you're right...I though there was one other with that form as well, but my mnd is drawing a blank...I would say that if you're going to get it, then you might want to build a mini terrerium for it first...I personally wouldn't try my luck on a windowsill...

    I think jacquelinae needs humidity high. My friend says his is in shock cause of humidity problems and he might lose it.

    IIIII WOULD!!!!!!
    But that's just me.
    There are a few species with that same form. Jamban has the same form, but with a thinner peristome, kinda like an eymae in permanent uppers. Tenuis and flava also do, and flava has the interesting characteristics of jacq lowers and jamban uppers.
    B.T: If a plant stops growing for a bit because of low humidity, it usually adapts and starts growing again eventually. If the leaves start to get all droopy and crispy from low humidity.... that's when it's gonna kick the bucket. So it depends on what kind of "shock" you're talking about.

    Wow, thanks for all of the replies everyone!

    I think I still might give it a shot, unless i decide not to spend so much.

    Anyways, thanks again!

    Jaque's definately prefer higher humidity - not overly high, but at least 60%. Mine suffered when humidity was under 50%...and has since bounced back. It was growing fine when humiidities were in the 60's.

    Phis, I misunderstood you - you're right - they won't die without showing signs. All of mine started to shrink before they croaked.

    eymae is a great plant! It's very closely related to maxima - and the lowers look very similar. However, they're not that much easier than jaques, in my experience. Maybe a little less sensetive to environmental flux. It DOES grow faster.
