    The picture does not show up on my screen. Don't know why.
    Bical is quite hardy at lowland condition. Not sure how is your terrarium condition. Here, bical produces ~1 leaf every month. Slow in leaf production but the plant gains size fast. Every new leaf is bigger. A plant starts at 10cm leaf span will get to 70cm after 3 years.

    If your plant is putting out healthy new leaves and pitchers, despite slow, probably you want to let it alone.

    I'm not sure what's going on with the photo. I've tried again. If it doesn't work it's at flickr[dot]com/photos/28088813@N03/9617726396/

    Each time i had a algae problem with a nepenthes, or any other plant, i resolve the problem by reducing the watering. Anyway, i always had better results when i grow my plants on the dry side.
    All you need to do to get rid of algae is to just let it dry a bit. I had huge green sheets of gunk growing in my flytraps' tray, but when they dried out it was fine.
