I've been having problems growing N bicalcarata over here in Puerto Rico since I started growing Nepenthes plants back in 2001. I'd like to know what experiences tropical growers have had with this plant growing it outside to see if I can finally figure out what I'm doing wrong. For reference, I keep these plants in >10" diameter pots which I fill up with a mix of clay pot chips, lava rocks and peat, roughly 1:1:1. I grow all my Neps in a pergola covered with shade cloth, which gives them filtered light most of the day, with some direct sun for a few hours in the afternoon. I use Tap water, which I know I shouldn't, but I have no other choice at the moment. I don't know how humid it gets, but I'd have to guess it fluctuates a lot between 65 to 100%. Any advice is appreciated.
