    Yes, Ant, there is an experiment online, with bicals, they put one in ideal condtions and another in lesser conditions.

    Results:

    Lowland Conditions:
    Grew: 87.9% Foliage and Pitchers

    Higland Conditons
    Grew: 54.7% Foliage and Pitchers

    if you keep a bical root bound in a small pot it will stay smaller. each time i repot my bicals, they have huge leaf size jumps.

    Doesn't root binding kill the plant long term?in a small pot could roots be cut to fit?

    um, carnivoure. What was the starting size of both, plants? or the time span they were grown like that? I am saying a bical wont just fill up a window in a single year, and if kept in not so ideal conditions is a very nice plant.

    They had a 7 inch leaf span, and about 4 inches tall, the one that almost 90 % had went from that to 15 inch leaf spant to 9 inches tall.

    I've grown a N.ampullaria and a N.Bicalcarata at a windowsill so far they're doing ok my N.Amp has two pitchers and the bical none it's steadly growing the temps they get now are 66F to 70F day and night 65F humidity about 50% day and 60% night or something like that hopefully they'll be happier once I get some good lights for them..

    Like everyone has said it's possible it'll grow more slower and when you first get the nep it'll be used to it's warm growing condition where ever you bought it from so it might go into shock going from one place to another mine did did't grow for a week after it arrived and being repotted, but now it's better the leaves look lot healthier than when I first got it.

    Since it's winter try to give it some lights if you do get it so it can grow it's starting to get more darker where I live so that's what I'm doing soon I can't stand to see my neps pitcherless.. D:
