    My new N. Bical

    Got this beauty this weekend. Looking forward to it crowding me out of house and home (and from what I read, it will)...

    Yes. It's sitting outside it's tank just for the photos, but it's living in a 10 gallon at the moment. The humidity is a standing 70%. I just put a heating mat underneath it to boost the ambient temperature (because the house is good for highlanders, while not great for lowlanders).

    Thanks! I'll post more pictures/updates as I continue to learn more.

    It's sharing the tank with an ampullaria at the moment (another newly acquired plant). First stab at the lowlanders, so I appreciate the luck!

    Do you mind me asking what temperature? I've heard high seventies to low eighties.

    I keep mine from 75 up to 100F (night temps are normally 65F), and it is growing explosively.
