    Ah, never mind then. Maybe one day in about 10 years time. I really cant afford or have room for a terrarium, so theres not much point in anybody saying that because mum wont let me, theres no room and it costs too much, and its loads of hassle to upkeep it aswell.

    I think I will get the orchid, Gongora gealata and put it in a hanging pot instead. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Theres nothing wrong with orchids now, are there? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Edit: Tony,
    Your plant is one of the original 1850m population plants, correct? I thought I recalled Rob saying they were sprouting around the first half of 2002... Maybe not. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Rob,
    Can you help out here? Now that they are all out in cultivation, can you maybe give a little more specific information on sprouting/sowing time?
    Thanks,
    John

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] True. I am partial to plants with openings, stickiness, or fast motion closings.

    Yes these are the 1850m seed grown plants. A few came in at the end of 2002. Most that went up for sale arrived mid 2003. Some were put on the market by other nurseries at this time. So this is when hobbyists would have seen them commercially available. An educated guess I would say the plants are approaching their 3rd birthday this Fall.

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

    That's what I was figuring, but I checked the tag, and somewhere from Rob I have down that they were sown in Early 2002... That's all that I have down.

    Here's my technical growlist excerpt on the plant:
    Nepenthes jacquelineae EPP 1850m/BE/Early 02 seed/first stock/late 03rec

    Seeds were first collected in Jan 2002. Germination was in February and all the plants we have put out to date were from seeds germinated in the nursery since they have been a major pain in the **** in sterile culture. We've finally cracked the tissue culture problem so there will be more plants hitting the market over the next year or so. Andreas and others also have this species now.

    The 1850m location was the original location where Charles and Troy disovered the plant. The 1750m location (from which we have yet to release any plants) is a different mountain altogether. The plants from this second mountain are more robust and somewhat more colorful -although how much more colorful than that plant of Tony's, can't be imagined! Generally though, there is more variation in color with the plants from the second mountain, green peristomes with red pitchers and vice-versa.

    I mentioned this thread to Charles Clarke who took a look and replied:

    "Thanks for that! They look great, but no matter how much pleasure
    people get from it, it'll never match the feeling I got the first time
    I laid eyes on it!"

    I can imagine!
