    Your plant is probably too small to take a cutting from. Also if you live in the northeast you might want to think about something beside bicalcarata unless you have a large lowland set up because it'll get big fast and you won't be able to grow it outside of a tank in the northeast. It's one of the lowlanders that can't be grown well as an intermediate unless your VERY skilled.

    Even very skilled the plant doesn't do well unless the conditions are right. I know my plants were kept too dry for two years and have not put on much size at all or any pretty pitchers. Now that I have them potted up right and its summer one is starting to grow pretty good.

    and i AM an expert
    Whoooooa, slow down! Some of the most experianced people on here won't self proclaim themselves experts. Almost everyone still has something to learn.
    Just by reading your last thread and your lack of knowledge on cold stratification of seeds, I would say that you're far from expert status. But don't worry, so am I.
    I'm sure many other people on here would agree with me.

    If you're up for a challenge, a very large challenge, then go ahead. No one is telling you that you cannot buy a Bical. They are simply warning you that it probably wouldn't work out in your conditions.

    So by all means, good luck if you decide to get one; but I think you should really look at an easier lowlander if you just need to have one.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
