    Nepenthes jacquelineae care

    i was thinking about getting a N. jacquelineae, but first i need to know, will this species do fine in intermidiate conditions or is it an ultra highlander?

    Thanks in advance

    N. jacquelineae is an obligate highland plant (cool, humid and bright). It will suffer quickly in improper conditions. I would reccomend N. jamban if you don't have the cool part of the HL conditions. It's rather similar looking to N. jacquelineae but also far more lenient temp wise for me (although 3x more expensive).

    It is a true HL plant that does best with high humidity and moderate light levels. I find that it does best in a substrate made of two layers, a Live sphagnum moss top layer, and a bottom layer made of perlite/orchid bark/ charcoal.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Exactly, the three times more thing, that kind of draws me away from it, im not really ready to spend that kind of money.

    Thanks a lot for your input swords.

    expect up to half a year before the plant is able to adjust itself---especially if purchased during the late spring/early summer.

    I have had mine for about two months. I was expecting it to be finicky, but it never skipped a beat. It started growing immediately and just opened a pitcher. It's growing in room humidity under fluorescent lighting and temperatures ranging from the low 70's to high 50's. It does not seem to be any more difficult than the average highlander.

    I have also heard that N. jamban is less temperamental in somewhat higher temperatures - however, that has not been my experience. I have N. jamban & N. aristolochioides growing in the same tank in my basement and N. jamban suffered even more last summer than N. aristolochioides. While the N. aristolochioides just slowed or stopped growth, N. jamban allowed all existing pitchers to rot, stopped making new pitchers and new leaves were a fraction of the size of those made in the winter. If the temps had continued much longer, I felt I might lose the plant.

    I do not grow N. jacquelineae, so I cannot make any comparisons with it.
    All the best,
