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.
15" x 15" ??
Man, I thought my pot was big enough at 12" x 8".
Crap. Now I have to repot again.....
With no where to put the darn thing!

YOU! Outta my gene pool!
Well this plant has thus survived my porch, and appears to be growing its first leaf since moving here, and that leaf looks like it has a pitcher. Here's hopin'
i was just wondering what humidity and temperature it is thriving in.?
Well, I have to say I've joined the windowsill bical group since my apt complex is renovating the outside of the building. I'll be darned if it isn't growing a new pitcher since moving from outside to the world of airconditioning.
Can these be grown as window plants? Maybe east or south? Where can I get one now?
My bical will be hitting the windowsill in a week or so. So I can not help you out yet. It is a south facing window.Originally Posted by [b
I have to see how it like the winters as I keep my house on the cool side. As a side not I have a N. rafflesiana that I grow as a windowsill plant. It just slows down over the winter.
