    Both N. jacquelineae and N. jamban have given me problems. They both did well the first few months I had them, then went into suspended animation for nearly a year, and have never recovered fully from it. Nepenthes are weird that way. Given the same conditions, they may do well under one grower's care and not so under another. It's like a roll of the dice haha.

    I agree...N. jacquelineae and jamban are pretty good plants in my conditions. The jacq does seem to be more sensitive to heat and it started showing heat stress (smaller leaves...yellow/red fungal pathogen dots on leaves (see old leaf in pic)...no pitchers) due to 3 months of over 90F during day time.

    But now...they are both thriving. Growing very well. You can see the jamban on the left and two jacq pitchers.

    Wow!! Mine (jamban) never saw temps much above 80*F during the heat of the summer and it acted like it was sitting in the middle of South Beach.
    All the best,

    I think it depends on how long it faces those adverse conditions. I did manage to sometimes drop night temps using an air conditioner to maybe 50F by directly venting the entire 5000BTU AC into the tank. But some plants actually found that sudden temp decrease actually damaging. Anyways, if the temp increase is gradual and if it isn't for too long, they should do fine...and if anything should slow down or show the signs I am talking about. But...if the growth point starts to die off, thats a bad sign.
