    Did you change its conditions somehow?

    My bical of 1.5 yrs also began pitchering last month. (see my earlier thread)
    I guess the plant need to accimilate to our growing conditions before they actually start to pitcher.
    BTW, i mist them twice a day.

    It seems the lid did not full fluxuate to it's proper form, hence the crossed teeth. It also seems that the pitcher itself did not balloon fully.

    I have not grown Bicalcarata in a long time so I forgot if the ballooning process of the pitcher stalls somewhat like that of Truncata, perhaps the conditions were changed? That could've installed shock on the plant and haulted the proper forming of the pitcher.

    Either way, you make Bicalcarata look even more gorgeous than it already is.

    Excellent plant.

    My baby-bicals (about one year old) started pitchering immediately after moving them from tropical outdoors (partialy shaded through vines) to a shade house. Now every leaf of every plant pitchers reliably. No high chair needed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I had it two years ago on a windowsill with only the morning sun, 7-10am. Then recently I moved and is now growing it on a balcony facing north, bright throughout the day with shade cloth.

    leafedwellsofwater is right. Right after I took the 3rd photo, the weather suddenly turned cooler and there wasn't very much light for a few days. 10-hr sunny days aren't going to around since it's already October.

    I like its velvety feel and look. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hmn... interesting. I moved my bical to shadier conditions because it was getting burnt. Looks like I should invest in some shade cloth. Cindy, do you find the need to mist your plant at all?
