    i hope bical doesnt turn out to be like aristo! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    aristo has been around for quite some time but then sorta dissapeard from the U.S. and now sorta high priced not because its that rare, but the avialability... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    but its better to want a bical when you have the right conditions to say it in a nice way. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    i hope this discourages anyone else from saying something that may be discoraging you from getting one... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] but take this advice... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Not really worried about the space. But then again I can't say how big they really get. It seems bicals are at a premium making then (in my experience) tough to get. If someone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    Not worried about space? Jeese, you better hope that if you want to keep it in the long term, that you can accomidate a 6-8 foot diameter plant [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] .

    While I've never seen a bical. in person, nor do I know how large they get, I find it hard to believe that the only way to successfully grow a health bical. is to provide a 6' - 8' diameter of growing space around it. If that were the case, I imagine you would have to spend a small fortune on shipping let alone the plant. My intentions are not to grow an award winning, super massive specimen but merely to enjoy the unique qualities the species has to offer. I do agree that if what you say is true (and it may be), bicals. have the potential to reach a mature growing diameter of 6' - 8' however, that does not mean it can't be grown otherwise. I'm looking for support and suggestions, not criticism and dissuasion. Please don't take this the wrong way. I greatly appreciate the concern and those of you that addressed it in a nice way. I'm just having a hard time finding any bicals. Thanks!
