    N. jacquelineae growers! (help wanted)

    So I just received a healthy looking tiny young N. jacquelineae as well as a spectabilis x aristolochiodies. These are two plants that I have been drooling over for a long while and I picked them up for what I thought to be a REALLY reasonable price! Anyway... that's not the point.

    Right now I have a lowland chamber that I grow my bicalcarata, ventricosa, ampullaria, and even my spectabilis x talangensis inside of. I try to keep it pretty moderate as far as lowland terrariums go. The spec x tal hybrid has done surprisingly good in the warm temps. I keep it about 85 degrees in the day and it might dip to high sixties - mid seventies at night.

    So... I know that this is probably not an ideal set up for jacquelineae, or maybe even the spec x aristo. I've heard the spec x aristo are bomb-proof so I'm not worried about what conditions I give it, but the jacquelineae I am a little more worried about.

    I've read and researched many times before, I understand it is a true highlander. But it's always nice to hear input from experienced growers like the ones that I know there are on here.

    So, what have you found to be optimum temperature fluctuations for N. jacquelineae?
    How much light does this species seem to thrive off of? More light or less?
    How temperamental is this species, how unforgiving is it in less than ideal conditions?
    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?

    Thanks all!

    Also always feel free to post pics of your beautiful N. jacquelineae plants.

    jacqs are not forgiving plants. you need strict highland conditions otherwise it's not gonna pitcher.
    rattler, from what i understand, grows them in intermediate conditions, but it hasnt pitchered for him at all.

    optimum temps: 80F max during the day, 50Fs at night.
    lighting: blast light away--full light. high humidity wouldnt hurt either.
    tempermental: two words-- harsh mistress.
    True Highland: you bet your pretty penny.

    i received my jac back in April. it decided not to pitcher for me until 3 weeks ago. that being said, the tendrils proceeding after the the developing pitcher have aborted. i blame a combination of over heating and possible pest damage.

    My BE clone made its only pitcher for me in 6mo of owning it with something like 75 day, low 60 to occasional upper 50's at night, and with its tendril resting on a spot of moss:

    (recently repotted in the last 2 weeks..)

    It gets mottled light throughout the day from 2pm-ish until sunset outside.

    jac doesnt seem terribly adaptable to me either and i grow it at much cooler temps than lowlands......my macro, burb, flava, hamata ect grow well for me but the jac growing alongside of them has been pouting for many, many months......

    I have that same thing..macro, flava, hamata. Jacq only put out pitchers when aristo and dubia did so maybe the way to go is to treat it as uhl?

    i have heard that jacqs are crazy hardy plants actually. i think the problem is getting them to a larger size...my jacq is about 9" in diameter and grows pretty well now, it took awhile to settle in and everything however...
    Coffee works wonders with it too, and i grow it as an ultrahighlander....

    and while im at it,

    im wondering if it aint the fact that the smaller sized plants are the reason they are a PITA, have heard that larger are more hardy.....
