    This sounds ideal except for the part about 71F during the day. This is probably not the best temp range. Bicals respond better to very hot conditions at all times......Don't worry about the size of your plant; after 6 months of growth you'll wish it would just stop.

    In my experience bicals are difficult to acclimate, but once they show strong growth they are more forgiving but still need those warm nights or they will eventually decline and die.

    Well I got the temp up to 83 and the humidity is about 75-80%. Is this good for a ventrata, ventricosa, a coccinea, a raffesliana, and a bical?
