    I listened to Trent and bent my N. bicalcarata on 4 December '05. Here's what it is putting out. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    It stays here. Squashed at a corner of my balcony.



    This is as far as it would bend. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] An idea for its size...that's a 8" pot.



    Basal? Or lateral? Shoot!

    Cindy,
    That's probably just the first. Typically, you'll get several more along that part of the vine.

    How is this process done?
    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer

    Wow, what a great Bical! I can't wait until I get my first one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Do you have pretty high humidity on that balcony or does your plant just adapt to lower humidity?

    LLGG:
    The temperatures lately are in the 80s. RH is from 65-84%. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    JLAP:
    I understand what you mean when you say you want to live in Singapore. That's how I felt when D. capensis die despite all our efforts in growing it and it is like a weed to most growers. I wanted to live in the States then! lol

    Trent:
    You mean that's only the beginning?! Wow! How come I don't see photos of vining N. bicalcarata with many lateral shoots online? You people must be hiding your plants from public eye! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    glider14:
    Umm...I just forcefully push it towards one side. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Here's the plant when it was upright. It tended to fall over anyway.



    Jason:
    That's the same one you saw at my balcony. Sri Aman, MT.
