    Question Where to get Bicalcarata?

    Hello,
    I have a big terrarium with all my nepenthes in it, they are N. Rajah, Sanguinea Blood Red, Highland truncata, Ventricosa x inermis, Mira and Ventricosa.The bottom is gravel, about an inch of peat for the moss to thrive on.(the plants are in pots)Since I know that bicalcaratas
    love it hot and humid, I thought it would be a nice addition to my terrarium.
    Anybody know where to get one?
    Trades are also welcome.
    Thanks,
    Adrian

    if you can get a rajah and bical to grow and pitcher together....then ill worship you. i really dont think its possible to grow both in the same place.

    but back to the original question...i dunno. i havent seen them around much lately.

    as they are saying.
    you cannot grow bical in a highland tank
    BIG difference in its requirements.
    your going to have to set up a lowlander tank for one.

    Oh,
    sorry I forgot to add that I move the rajah into another cooler terrarium at night along with
    the other plants that require a drop in night-time temperatures.
    By the way, the rajah is doing great and has 3 pitchers.
    Thanks,
    Adrian

    that may not be wise as the plant will have to adjust to the conditions again thus creatin stress and could kill the plant... keep it in one place....
