    hey kent,

    Bicals take a while to settle in. And dont change their conditions at all! Once they settle in. get ready for something like Matts beautiful specimen!

    They don't grow that fast, only once they put on size, then they pick up. Mine is close to a year with me are it still has no fangs. (and it is pitchering) Its conditions are pretty constant, up to the low 90's or high 80's in the day and never drops below the high 70's at night and the humidity is kinda high but the mold/fungus problem came and went with out much effect on the plants... On the other hand my amp was a 1 inch plant, but instead of slowly growing into a nice sized plant its leaves suddenly doubled in size! I need to find a more permanent home for it.

    Very nice bical, Matt. You'll soon need a larger growing space just for it!
