    Hi all,

    I saw a picture of a nepenthes biclarata where the lid of the pitcher looks like it has fangs! I thought this was really! cool so I decided I needed to find one. Does anyone know where I can find a nepenthes biclarata because it looks so cool with fang type things on the lid of the pitcher.

    THanks all,
    -Aaron

    Hi,
    I think Cook's Carnivorous Plants has some Bicarlata, you must make sure they have the right humidity, temps, and water to care for the plant though.

    Aaron,

    I was in the Exotic Gardens green house a couple of weeks ago and know that I saw several Bicalarata.

    I don't know if they are for sale yet, or if they have been sold, but your best bet is to e-mail phil, and he will let you know.

    The really cool thing about bicalcarata is that sometimes nectar drips from the spures! (fangs) and it looks like venom [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Nepenthes bicalcarata is among my favorites of Neps! The latest pitcher on my own plant which opened is the size of a softball with 1 cm fangs and the plant is only 30" across (can be up to 72" across). This is one plant that will really get huge on you so you will need to prepare, mine went from 6-8" across to 30" across since I got it in June.

    Heat & humidity are highly important with this guy if you want to maintain rapid growth and that dripping nectar and big pitchers requires bright light. I get a full leaf every two weeks with a fully opened and hungry pitcher every 3-4 weeks.

    A fun plant and easy if you respect it's requirements.

    good luck!
