    A guy I know who owns an orchid shop here in MN will be getting some N. jacquelineae imported in this fall and of course I want one! Has anyone kept these? I understand they were just named in 2000...
    How about you Tony, you seem to have it all at your place! Any thoughts on them?

    Thanks folks!

    N. jacquelineae, is brand spanking new to cultivation. And it is a monstourous plant EVENTUALLY like Sumatrana,Bicalcarata,etc. (from whta I have heard) and no, hardly anyone has this plant yet But hopefully it should become available sometime soon. But yes, we are all awaiting it's arrival. Even Tony.

    As far as I know they will soon be coming out of the labs and into growing ranges. Some will probably trickle down towards the end of the year to US growers but expect them to be TINY plants.

    Based on the description, regular highland culture should be fine. Size according to the description really isn't that large.. 40cm across on a climbing stem with upper pitchers (which is about 17 inches). It does make very long tendrils however.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Wow if Tony ain't got one yet... I really must have it!

    I hope Jerry was right about getting them "in the fall" unfortunately he wasn't any more specific than that. Mostly he was talking about getting this years Borneo Adventure tour together. Sure wish I had the dough to go along!

    We have a shop called Orchids Limited in Plymouth MN-their prices are sky high but if you're an impulse buyer you don't mind... sometimes! And the owner is a nice guy (as are all the workers) so I don't mind supporting a good local business, at least they know a lot more than the regular "tropical plant" store which sold me 3 different "N.xCoccineas" only one of which was!

    OL is starting to get more CPs, they carry the more common Nepenthes mainly but they've started to carry Sarracenias, Sundews, Pings, Cobras, etc. whether this is due to my pestering I'm not sure. Now if I could get them to start keeping the CPs more humid and closer to the swamp cooler so they don't get crispy on the leaf edges... or they could just hire me and I'll do it!

    However, when I'm seriously set on Nepenthes shopping I do go via mailorder cos it's a cheaper way to get a lot of plants.

    I find it difficult to believe anyone will have this species available soon.

    Charles and I found it, I haven't told anyone exactly where we found it and I doubt Charles has either - though I can't guarantee that of course. There was no seed to collect and neither of us has been back to the site since we found it.

    Cheers, Troy.

    The picture of the climbing plant in Clarke's book on page 147 is somewhat misleading as the pitchers have to be much smaller than the size of 15cm for upper pitchers he mentiones in the text. Hopefully Borneo Exotics doesn't ask for prices similar to that of N. argentii - of course beeing the only source for these plants in the near future they will be able to.

    The other Nepenthes that finally will come from them is N. dubia I hope they do have at least one reliable distributor in europe right then or Tony will be able to ship worldwide!?
