    I hate to do it but I must sell my large Nepenthes bicalcarata. It's exactly 3 feet from leaf tip to leaf tip (not counting tendrils and pitchers) but the latest leaf is 20-22" in length so it will be nearly 4 feet across with the next leaf. It will continue to grow for another 1- 2 feet in diameter before it begins to climb so you will need to have a year round tropical greenhouse to keep this one happy.
    It has been growing directly under 400W of MH with 80-100% humidity and near daily watering.

    There are pitchers (or developing buds) on every leaf the biggest pitcher is about the size of a grapefruit.

    I will be putting this guy up on Ebay Thursday May 1st. Shipping will probably be quite high as this is a big plant with leaves that are very stiff and can not be bent so I will need to construct a box about 40" x 40" to ship it in.

    Unforunately I can never get my pics from this terrarium to turn out, apparently my camera doesn't like metal halide light:

    People keep saying not to put it on Ebay but since there is more than one person interested I don't know of a better way.

    Also because I don't have an idea what to ask for the price! Neps I've ever seen for sale were always 3 - 6" diameter plants. I don't want to seem greedy but I do know it could likely be worth a pretty penny too for a collector who wants a huge plant right now.

    I think you should charge whatever you think it's worth. Think of all the time and effort you put into growing the N. bical this big. I'm sure some eccentric millionaire with a huge greenhouse wouldn't mind paying $100-$200 for a plant he could use to impress his other millionaire friends.

    PS- looks like the plant has enough room...sure you couldn't put it in it's own shower stall?

    I think an auction on PFT.com would be pretty cool too. I believe that Phil was thinking about adding more comunity type things like a CP classified ads section and an auction place, but they got burried under other stuff. But who knows what might happen... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
