    Well,
    I just noticed that I am closing in on having my jacquelineae for a year! I know a while back that there was a thread where jacquelineae growers posted pics and guessed as to what colors their pitchers would be. I know jeremiah has a brilliant red similar to mine, and I believe josh's plant in more yellow/green, but I would love to hear updates on growing, what works for you, what doesn't, etc. I will put up some pics, but my latest pitcher formed hanging in mid-air and is not a great shower of the typical coloration/size of my pitchers. My best and biggest pitcher just blackened, which is odd, because some of my pitchers on the plant are going on 10 months old! This seems to be typical behavior, the pitchers age on their own accord. It doesn't have to do with feeding, because all of the pitchers are fed similarly. Let's hear some info and see some pics!!

    EDIT: Here are some pics of the big pitcher, unfortunately the quality is low, as they are before I got more skilled at photography...

    Whole pitcher:

    Peristome:

    EDIT: Yes, the peristome really is that shiny.

    I'll get some pics of the whole plant as of today in a few minutes... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Enjoy!
    I am back..

    I find that it produces leaves at a moderate pace. Once the tendrils are fully dropped, they inflate within a couple of days. Then after inflated, the peristome and coloring up take another 2-3 days. I just went up to take pics, but the digicam is out of battery and I can't find the charger... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] I managed to snap one of the plant with a 6 inch ruler (the plant is nearly exactly 6" diameter. Maybe I'll put that one up later. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow! That pitcher is looking more mature than mine by perhaps 1-2 pitchers time. My plant seems a little bit bigger heightwise, but diameter is spot on... Did you perhaps repot and bury some of the old stem in the orchid bark? Also, nice bongso or carunculata or ovata! (whichever it is) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Oh, man....My jacq sufferred a set back earlier this year. It has since recovered, but is only just inflating it's first pitcher since the recovery. Ironically, the unopenned pitcher is already bigger than the previous ones that it had before the fall.

    I know all about plants falling down [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
    My big N. burbidgeae crashed down onto one of my N. sanguinea today!! Two plants for the price of one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
    The burbidgeae survived intact apart from being unpotted. The sanguinea had both its growing tips chopped off [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_t_32.gif[/img]

    The pain...

    cheers
