Wrong. Cirrus clouds form in the upper troposphere.

Unmodified jet exhaust should not contain enough particulate matter to form a cloud and it would be impossible in low-humidity environments where chemtrails are often spotted.
And what is the basis of your claim that the upper troposphere is a low-humidity environment? (hint: it's that pesky ice supersaturation isue again)

Once ice crystals start to form in a contrail stream, they will grow untill they splinter and fracture. In this manner, the crystals propagate and multiply.
