    I hate to do this, but I'ma have to drop out of the race. Some of my plants broke out with rust(including the jacq), so I sprayed them...a bit too heavily. The jacq reacted the worst of all of them and seems mostly dead. It may come back in some form or another, but there's no way the race could be continued regardless.
    Sorry all. *facepalm*

    Darn! That's awful. I've lost more neps this year than ever before because of pests.

    All you can do is hope for the best.

    Aww... they're so cute. :3
    I think Kriss's is cutest, with its fat little leaves, but I think the jacquelinae looks very nice - almost elegant. :3

    truly sorry to hear that ANdrew. I almost had a heart attack and am still living with my heart between my teeth having found out that I had 2 scale infested plants in an enclousure for 6 months with all my other neps. I can understand how pests can devestate a collection. So I know what it feels like when pests enter and shatter your favourites.

    Truly sympathetic man. I feel for ya. Its an expensive plant to begin with. Don't be disheartened...things will turn up. The jacq is a very tough plant from what I have seen and read. I would suggest drastically cutting the water down, maybe changing the media if necessary to a more bark with very less fresh sphagnum and hoping for the best. I am sure that ti can survive. Don't give up on it.

    OH NOES! I was looking forward to this. So sorry to hear that Andrew. So I guess this thread is done? Or maybe Kris can keep updating his hamata?
