Just as I thought. This is from his profile.
I am a pre-teen, Webkinz and carnivorous plant collector. I am also a boy.
Must be really young if he is collecting Webkinz. Nope I would definitely NOT label you an expert at anything yet. Its all in your head. Don't worry you will grow out of it.
Besides. If you were able to grow bical in your kitchen, I bet your mother would get rather mad when your foot and a half wide Bical keeps getting in the way. As everyone keeps trying to tell you. These things get HUGE!!! I haven't seen it yet with mine, but then again I was growing them wrong too. Barely keeping them alive is what I was going.
BTW your plant looks like it might be ventrata, one of the most common hybrids around to my knowledge. I routinely give cuttings away. I had so many last time I gave two cuttings to people and still no one wanted them all. Good luck with that trade idea.
