    N.bicalcarata

    Just wondering what these guys were like to grow? I live in Western Australia and was thinking of keeping it outside, in a shadehouse and in one of those mini greenhouses... you know, the ones with the plastic covers and a few shelves inside.

    Bical can get to be very big in a short time. Just be sure that it has the proper room to grow.

    There isnt enough air circulation and it gets waaaay too hot in those minigreenhouses, i had one sitting in partial sun last year that got insanely hot and muggy, well over 100ºF.
    I personally, would just grow it in a large greenhouse or if you have high humidity in your area and consistantly warm temps, just grow it outdoors under a shaded spot.
