my N. bical which had the "tragic accident" (heavy glass terrarium lid fell on it and snapped the tip off) has just made it's first full leaf since the accident and it's the biggest yet about 16" long and 4" wide and just the starting pitcher bud is 2" - I can't wait to see the pitcher it makes! When the next leaf extens the plant will be about 30-36" across! I'm so glad the accident wasn't as bad as I originally thought and glad you folks told me not to throw the plant out.
However all is not perfect as I notice roots are starting to become visible on the surface of the pot (10" hanging pot) and so transplanting must be done and I'm thinking of using a more peaty mix (I'll just settle the current soil mass into the new mix instead of bare rooting it and shocking it) than pure LFS as before since this plant is a water hog I'll use a mix that holds more water.
But what size pot should I put it in? I got it in a 6" azalea pot in June and now as of Nov he's outgrown a 10" pot! How big of a pot will I eventually need? Into the 5 gallon pail size range or bigger?
I know this plant gets enormous but seems like it's also a very quick grower. Does anyone have a full grown one that they got as a smaller plant and know how long it took to reach that size?
Also, without a greenhouse where do I keep a 2+ meter diameter plant?
Can you read the panic there? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
