Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrgggggghhhhhh!!! (up on roof with shotgun shooting into the sky)
I was doing my watering for the 75 gallon lowland tank and the lid fell off it's track and into the terrarium and smashed my bicals growing tip and snapped it right off!

Of course, my bical was one of the biggest and most robust grower in my lowland tank - so it just had to be this one! Lord knows it couldn't have been the now fungus free tiny $6 ampullaria!
I am assuming it's toast since the point where all new growth comes from is now gone (the new developing leaf (as yet ungrown and unfurled was severed off) it's only got maybe 8 leaves on it (5 have pitchers whch had been well fed before tonight) is it possible a side node will sprout if I let it be? It is in it's rosette stage but it is about 14" across with 5" (largest) pitchers.
Any tips to give me on nurturing what's left of my poor Bical or should I just toss the plant in the trash and go back to screaming profanities in the woods?
