    I wouldn't really reccomend a jaq just yet, nor an aristo. Slow down. Lowii was ambitious for a 1-month-old CPer, but good luck with it . I would highly recommend maxima, it's very easy and a fast and breathe thaking plant. I love mine. Fusca's another good one that went crazy on my grow rack. But then "grow rack" is a broad term as PK said. Do you know what minimum and maximum temps it gets to in the day and at night? And any idea about the humidity? Light is also very important, how many bulbs/what kind of light do you use? Flourescents? MH?
    Here are some good, easy and breathe thaking hybrids.
    "Sabre, "black dragon," "marbled dragon" and "red dragon."
    basically any hybrid involving maxima, ventricosa, or alata.
    truncata worked for me, but gawd it's slow. I have a pasian highland form.
    macfarlanei also worked, but some people say it needs high humidity. Haven't found that to be true...
    hope this helps
    Ben

    P.S. I just had to make fun of your spelling. "Breathe thaking..."

    he got his lowii from the same place I did and mine doesn't look great it arrived in rather poor conditions but I grow hamata really well so it's not like I can't grow lowii.
    I have an epphipiata that does great right now it's forming two new pitchers at once and it has like 4-5 new leaves that have formed since I bought it mid-late winter.

    While we're on the topic of spelling, you butchered the name of the taxon. Its jacquelineae.

    You need to mention these are impossible to find anymore. Especially N. x black dragon

    but I grow hamata really well so it's not like I can't grow lowii.
    that's incorrect. hamata is NOT a hard plant to grow. if its anything like its cousin N. tentaculata it would be one of my easiest growing highlanders. lowii likes it much cooler for signifigant growth increse. mine is just a tad too hot and the leaves arent increasing in size. pitcher to leaf ratio is 2:1!!! and epphipiata is way easier growing that lowii is.

    saying that if you grow this plant then you can grow this plant cant be applied to Nepenthes. you could start with ventrata and work your way up to villosa. so if you can grow ventrata then that must mean you can grow villosa...doesn't work like that.

    anywho back to the main point. from what i know and heard N. jacq is a typical highlander. high humidity and cool nights and warm days. give it that and you should be ok. however like other people said.... unless you know for 100% sure you can grow it. dont get it. the price on one of those babies will make your wallet cry if your conditions arent right. start small. and slowly work your way up.

    Hey there Jim,

    I usually maintain a decent daytime humidity ~60-70%. My daytime temps are usually 70-80F. My nighttime humidity is usually very saturated (probably 90+%, and my night temps aren't difficult to attain at 60-65F. I grow the Jaq and Aristo in a tank so the humidity is fairly consistent. I also have them under T5 lighting. The Jaq appears to be more vigorous than the Aristo, but this could be because of the vendor I received the Aristo from.
