    I don't really care if it is. Its not like it is to much different from the hybrid. Besides, its not like I didn't want one, I was getting the hybrid because they are suppose to be easy compared to their parents.

    Bical is easy as long as you keep it hot and humid. They get big though. I have a seedling I got last June. Has gone from 6" leafspan to 28" leafspan already and that was over the winter. Has also [produced 6 pitchers over winter; although I do suppliment lighting. Going into my lowland greenhouse in a week or so/still fine tuning. Its starting to take off now.

    My bical finally popped out two larger normal looking leaves. Looks like it's finally getting w/ the program.

    Apparently if you grow them wrong, they stay the same size for over a year.

    Neither parent is hard at all. Both are excellent beginners plants.

    I have the plant on the window with a puddle of water. The plant is not sitting in the water. What temp. should the plant be at? Is their a good lowland guide here? I just want to make sure I do things right from the start, I don't want to wait a year for a plant to acually grow bigger.

    Here they are, I have it in a 2.5 gallon tank with a glass lid in the window, it gets a pretty good greenhouse effect and so far no dicline or browning pitcher nubs.
