    My enormous one was nearly 2 meters in diameter with 20 x 15 cm cm pitchers and begining to climb this last August when I repotted (and subsequently killed it by doing so). My apologies to you folks who were waiting for cuttings that were supposed to be available from it this upcoming summer! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    So my current N. bicals are 35 cm in diameter with 8 cm pitchers.

    Wow, that sucks. I feel sorry for you. Hehe, It's comparable to the Super huge 3' stem, 17" pitchered, new N. truncata x thorelii I had got last year. Sadly, my mother intentionaly killed it. Oh sweet painful memmories... Anyway, my relatively new bical is about 8" diameter.

    How/why would she intentionally kill your plant?

    I measured "Big Mama" this morning. From leaf tip to leaf tip, not including tendrils or pitchers, she's 55 inches.

    Swords, that bites...
    At least they grow fairly quickly, though, so you other one shouldn't be too far behind.

    I saw a bical at the NECPS show that had to be 4 feet across (didn't actually measure it). The pitchers were almost as big as my head.

    thanks for the pics, nepenthes gracilis. Any full shots of the grow chamber?
    Trent, what are you keeping yours in?
    Im asking, because, mine is outgrowing its enclosure. I want to put it in a chamber that it will stay in for life (or for a long time).

    I'll have to agree with Schloaty -

    That monster bical won the outstanding plant award at the show and was the most frightening plant I have ever seen. The kids didn't want to go near it!
