    Matti:

    Check the roots, may be you'll see something green still at the bottom. But if most of the plant is black it is most likely dead!!.

    Cool

    Mine is also going bad. Its a n. bicalcarata 'yellow' and the edges of the leaves are turning brown. I'll try to post a pic later today so you could see. I really dont want to loose it.

    Well, you know, like high humidity, 85-90 degrees day, 70's at night, etc. That stuff. Andenes, what are your conditions for the bical?

    I think I remember reading that N. bical like wetter conditions than other nepenthes. I had a bical that I let dry out and it wilted and never recovered. 2 other nepenthes that dried out at the same time recovered after watering though.
    I was so upset and angry with myself!

    Do other cp growers keep their bical wetter than their other nepenthes?
    happy growing, Neil.
