    Nepenthes jacquelineae - Ease of care?

    Hey Guys,

    I've been looking at these on the net for a while, and I'm under the impression from the description that they aren't all that difficult. I was thinking about having my parents get me the plant as a Christmas present, but before I have them go and spend $70() on it, I need to know how hardy it is, and I'd like to get opinions from those growing the plant here on the boards. Until spring(or the nights are warm enough for it to be in the GH), it would be on a really bright windowsill. Temps range 72/73Fish during the day, a little cooler at night(this can be adjusted).

    Anyways, I get the feeling I've made a fairly incoherent post, but you get the picture. Is this thing like a rajah where its got very specific requirements, or is it more just a really expensive plant due to high demand?

    Thanks!
    Andrew

    I have found Jacquelineae to be my fastest growing nep. I don't even give it a nighttime temp drop, and it's thriving.

    me too. Nepsaroundthehouse grows jacq with success in southern california, if that helps. It should like temp drops at night, but I guess it's not entirely necessary according to jeff.

    But jeff....how long have u had it? I remember that many regular highlanders seem to do fine without any nighttime drop for a while....sometimes for many months but then suddenly go downhill. The recent case is a friend whose mikei was giving bad issues. He already lost a mikei before the same way. They both seemed to grow well for many months but then suddenly hit the bucket.
