    Is there anyway to keep a bical in a terrarium size but still have adult size ptichers? I dont want it to be 6 feet tall and the leaves to be 4 feet big. Is it possible I could cut off the top stem wen its growing and plant is as a cutting? I might buy a 10 gallon aquarium and just keep a bical and maybe one or two more species in there. Wat do u think?

    well if the leaves get to big you could cut them in half. only do this if there isnt going to be a pitcher on it

    I think there's probably a reason that all the experts say that this is a big plant that needs a big space. I'm not sure that a ten gallon aquarium could even hold the approprate pot for a bicalcarata. You could maybe raise cuttings in a little tank, but I'm not too sure about an adult plant.

    Doubtful. N. bicalcarata requires exceedingly high temperatures and humidity; 80F-100F and 80%-100% RH from my understanding. Additionally, these conditions must be kept relatively constant day and night for good growth. They also need more light than most CF bulbs will provide. N. bical is by far one of the most demanding lowlanders so far as I have heard and read; taking one on will be a very big commitment.

    A 10-gallon aquarium is not going to work. Seriously consider either building a large grow chamber or trying a different species.
