    Well Im getting a N.bical from ***********.com soon and IM wondering... wat is the best growing conditions for a bical? Im in NJ but wen I first get it its going to be in a terrarium. The temps are about 71F and the humidity is about 90%. Ill be growing it like that for about 2 months and then ill be putting it outside. Do u think it will be ok? The temps outside her in NJ are about 90-95 during summer and 70% humidity during the day. At nite the temps and humidity will be about 80F and 80%. Will it thrive? And wat fertilizer do u recommend for my neps? And how do u dilute it? Also, the plant will be coming in a 3" pot. Do u think this is big enouf for a bical coming from *********** wen the description says that the plants are about 4 inches across? How long will this pot last them and should I top-water or use the tray-system? Thanks!!!!

    outside temps in the the summer with a little more humidity in the day is good. i have heard though it is extremly hard to grow a bical outdoors in any conditions. you should probly get advice from those who grow it. WAIT TO USE ANY FERTILIZER. it can do more harm than good almost 80% of the time(at least in my experience) Bical's roots get HUGE and you need big pots for it to grow right but since it is small it SHOULD be ok...for now. i have heard you can use the tray method for bicalcarata's but again id get more experience from other growers. Oh almost forgot. BICALCARATA WILL GET HUGE!!! with leaves oven two feet in some cases but while the pitchers only get to ~5 inches. unless you get a greenhouse it will be difficult to grow long term.

    I think im getting it tommorow too. When I got the tracking code I went onto it and it sed shipping date: 02/09/06. Does this mean that Im going to get my package tommorow or does it mean they are going to start shipping it tomorrow?

    Hmmm, it should say "Delivery Date" for when you'll get it. However, if you have the tracking info already, chances are you're getting it tomorrow. When did you order it?
