Good job. They really need to be in a big pot especially bical. Your bical may slow growth at first after a repot although the ones I have never do. Supposedlly bicals roots can be sensitive if plant was root bound. That is why I like to overpot bical. Getting ready to repot a seedling bical red x orange from a 6" pot to a 12" pot myself. Has been in the 6" pot for right at 1 year. Has gone from a 6" leatspan to 24" leafspan in that time. They usually take off after a repot for me.
hopefully this wont create any angst, but I've read that of all neps that the bical is the one that usually does better in a mostly peat mix since in its natural habitat it grows in peat swamps... its a bit different than every other nep.
I'm sure it'll grow great in the mix you put it in, just thought I'd share my two cents since I'm dealing with the exact same plants you are from the same place and the same size
show those pics!
Your one and only pest!
Not to highjack your thread but, I also have a bical. but, what leaf span should fangs start to show on it. (It finially pitchered agian!)
Rub my belly!
Before repoting I read a little on media for bicals I saw they would be better in mostly peat mix, but I already had to media mixed up so I added extra peat to the mix then I repoted the Neps so far they're doing well the pitchers on the amp is still fine and the bical looks ok I guess I'll see how they do in the mix in a few monthes I don't mind you saying that I agree I probably should have just made a new mix of media and used the other stuff for a different Nep, but it's kinda late now so I'll keep watch on the two guys and see how they do once they start growing good I'll post an update hopefully with pictures.
