    Hmm I have mine in a little pot now because its a small guy. I mean SMALL. Less tha 4 inches across. It took a hit adjusting when I got it from black jungle, but its growing. I think I will leave it alone till it is starting to grow good before I move it to a bigger pot.

    Your Bicals are AWESOME. I can't wait till mine start to grow like wildfire. I enjoy larger plants. I will make the room for them

    So far I'm quite pleased with my baby bicalcs. When I got them in early April, they had a total leafspan of maybe 3" with pitchers less than 1" tall, and now ithey've both just put out a single leaf that's easily 4" long (the pitchers on those haven't developed yet).

    What potting medium are you using? Pure LFS?

    Yes, I use pure LFS. The soggier, the better, what with them being Creatures from the Swamp and all.

    I just got my first bical and its out on my patio in the Atlanta summer. It came growing in a 3" pot from Sarrencenia Northwest. I immediately put it in a 6" pot filled with LFS. Its been a week now and it hasn't croaked, and yet hasn't really grown. I'm taking this neutrality to be a step in the right direction -> I didn't immediately kill it.

    I just got several bicals from that Sarracenia Northwest sale as well. They're all in different growing conditions, so we'll see how they do.
