    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] Wow! I came upon this thread a bit late but that's a really spectacular plant Dustin. I've never managed to get that many pitchers on a N. bicalcarata at one time. As Tony said, sleep with at least one eye open! LOL!

    Gee Thanks Rob! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I dont do anything special for it..just lots of water and humidity. Plus a nice steady temp range of 81F down to 76F at night.

    Holey &(W#&#! And I thought 1 new leaf a week was fast (on a N. ventricosa).

    Swords... I hate to mention it, but did that bug juice get onto the rest of the plants or the roots? I just have to say something about that because in my expereance that stuff is loaded with live biomatter and it's not too hard for me to see some of it deciding to eat the plants roots. In my own experience, any splashed juice, even if quickly wiped up will cause infection in whatever part of the plant it gets into. I had to cut off a bunch of infected leaves on my N. sanguniea and spray it down with fungiside when it got knocked over one day. It took about a week for the infection to start, but my plant was small enough so I know the leaves I lost were the ones that got yucky :P set it back a while too, I'm just now getting my first pitchure since the accident. I also have lost pitchures on my N. ventricosa when they slosh up over the edge. When they start to melt down I cut back to just above good flesh and it usually stops it, but I've got a few 1/2 pitchures that are almost a year old (as 1/2 a trap) on that plant, lol. Anyhow, I definetly recomend draining the traps before transplant and flushing the whole plant off aftwards.

    ... I have not had to transplant yet... should I wait untill the roots start to poke out the bottom?
