    A true highland set up is required right?

    When I make that set up, do you think I should move the hybrids into the set up? Will they benefit more from a true highland or a moderate lowland set up?
    I agree that N. jacquelineae can be unforgiving -- and rather slow to settle in, especially as a tiny, recently de-flasked plant; that had been my early experience. That said, it is a true highlander (occurring in the wild at 1700-2200 meters) and mine consistently see temperatures in the low fifties, high forties by night -- and reasonably warm temps by day -- say a twenty temperature range. It does well in filtered or diffused light. I found the leaves a bit sensitive to direct light and they were quick to burn.

    I honestly don't think that it will survive intermediate conditions for too long . . .

    i think that is more than likely the case rattler, i hear the same thing about baby hamata (however i havent noticed that so much in my plants of various size)
    i am thinking of picking up a couple more smaller jacqs and seeing how it goes, though highlanders have never really been a problem for me....other than rajah, it grows but it just doesnt pitcher (getting close to 9" in diameter now as well)

    Thanks for the replies everybody!

    This is the first true Highland/Ultra plant I've ever had so this is great information to hear.

    Looks like tomorrow I will create an Ultrahighland terrarium for it and I'll even pull it out of the steamy intermediate den right now and give it a Southeast Alaskan cooling for its first night with me.

    I figure if I can grow lowlanders I aught to be able to grow highlanders too right?

    I'm expecting it to be a very long haul for this lovely little lady until she's as good looking as Kris's. Day one.

    So far this hybrid has already...

    lived up to my...

    expectations! Nepenthes spectabilis x aristolochioides

    I've found jacq to be quite finicky. Pitchers randomly, makes a few good leaves then makes a few small ones, grows in spurts, etc. Very inconsistent. It does best for me overall in the colder months of the year, when I can give it solid highland to ultrahighland conditions. But in summer it really suffers. My summer temps run about 80-85 in the day, 65 at night. My jacq doesn't do well in those temps. And I've noticed it likes humidity a lot.

    Got my 4 inch jacq in my growroom with my amp and inermis.
    It seems to do very well in there.
    Since i got it little over a month ago it made 2 new leaves, and working on its 2nd pitcher.
    Temps are 85 by day and 68 at night.
    60-100% humidity.

    Wow! that answer came out of the left field. Thanks for the input, I'm definitely going to try and give it as highland as possible just in case.
