    I'm trying to get ahold of an N. Bicalcarata and i'm looking for a small (5 or 6 inches max) that I don't need to import, that costs less than 25&#36 and of course is a healthy plant. I've been searching all over and everything seems to have a catch. Can someone help me out! :confused:

    If you grow N. bicalcarata under very warm and humid conditions (which it prefers) you will get HUGE plants in ralativly short time.
    Do you have the space for 80cm long leafes ?

    N. bicalcarata is NOT a terrarium plant !

    N. bicalcarata is pretty plentiful on the market and not usually that expensive. There are orange/yellow forms and red forms. You can check the ICPS webring for commercial growers here: http://www.carnivorousplants.org/web...rcialsites.cgi

    I just got a batch of some seed grown yellow/orange ones and some TC red ones from Borneo but it will be a couple months or so before they are established to release.

    N. bicalcarata is not a suitable houseplant, i.e. wouldn't work in a typical room in a hanging pot. It needs high humidity and warm temps in order to pitcher well, which is why I plan to move it into my bathroom in the Fall after we move to the new apartment, and I plan to keep the bathroom door closed all the time for it. Let's just hope it doesn't outgrow my terrarium by then, though I'm sure it probably will, lol. It has more than doubled in size in the past three months! =P
