[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] ) Cool and humid, but not soppy. Fog tends to be ok. Maybe search for jacquelineae in the Nep forum, I know there have been two topics I submitted a lot of information to. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] I grow N.maxima and N.venatrata(N.ventricosa x alata) on my windowsill. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] And I grow H.heterodoxa x minor on my windowsill, surprisingly, the plant loves my windowsill!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Usually the temperatures drop between 10-15 Celcious(when I said 6oC I meant celcious)
    10 Celcious is around 45 Fahrenheit. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] 6 Celcious is around 38 Fahrenheit.

    Um, mom bought me a hanging pot, the plan is to buy a plant, put it in the hanging pot and hang it on my curtain pole. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    I want to put N.jacqualine in there!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Here is one of the plant pics as requested. Pot is 4" which makes the plant about 9" diameter.

    This is the dark colored one pictured above. The pitcher in the photo is on the lower right and it has just opened a new pitcher on the left. It takes a little while for the pitchers to color up fully.

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

    I believe it's now N. hurrelliana, not N. hurrellii.

    Bob, if you look at the gallery section of my website under N. veitchii there a photo of N. hurrelliana mislabeled as N. veitchii. Here it is:



    I came across this species in the mid 1980's on the Pagon Ridge between Brunei and Sarawak at about 5,000 to 6,000 ft. It hadn't yet been officially discovered at that time so I thought it was N. veitchii. Sure it isn't a hybrid as there is that species all around that mountain ridge but No. N. fusca or true N veitchii.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Tony, amazing N. jac! I know for a fact that your plants were the same size as mine at one time and now yours have pulled well ahead. Considering I have a nursery at the right lattitude and nearly the right altitude, I've got to take my hat off to you! Are you still using Osmocote for those, or are you supplementing with crickets?

    Thanks Rob,

    Will have to correct my info on the cross. I don't agree with the natural hybrid suggestions either. I have N. veitchii x fusca and while they are very pretty with the peristome elongated from the N. fusca. They don't look like any of the pics I have seen of this other plant.

    I have mostly stopped trying to suppliment with insects. There are just too many plants. This time of year the plants do get a natural meal here and there on their own but I don't think it is enough to make much of an impact.

    So, are you two trying to weave the moral that Osmocote is better than insect feeding? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Cheers,

    Personally I don't think one type of feeding is better than another, as long as a quality food is used and it's use and application is adjusted to fit the persons cultivation techniques.

    By food I mean anything that could be used by the plant as nutrition and by any means absorbed into the plant.

    Rob,
    I must agree about Tony's plant pulling well ahead! Mine is in a very closely controlled growchamber, and is around 5 inches diameter with about one-one and a half inch pitchers...

    Dino,
    The temps sound alright, but I think you should progress slowly and wait for the TC plants to become widely available. I hate to say it, but maxima and ventrata are two of the most tolerant plants there are in my experience. Not trying to bring you down, just trying to prevent disappointment if such a jewel doesn't thrive in your conditions... What part of England are you in? I can help you out, because I do remember last summer in Lyme Regis the summer was optimal conditions for highland neps up to about 1600 m a.s.l, maybe even 2000(!). Of course, that was a mild coastline summer...

    I am back..
