    Yes Pavel, this is the largest Nepenthes plant wise.... mine is already 2ft leaf tip to leaf
    tip. Which is still small for this plant, as it can reach a meter for each leaf.

    Boy, a lot of growers in Manila are using tap water. And they seems to be doing well,
    maybe what you could do is let the water stand in a bucket overnight to let the chlorine
    evaporate. Me, i water directly from the tap... but our water here is well water.
    I will/might be at Centris this Sunday, just to check out the new place, and hopefully bring home
    some nice new plants. I would love to send you a link to a local supplier of Nepenthes in the
    Philippines, however I cant send PM to you.

    Welcome Raf, my N. bicalcarata is about a year old, I got it last year at 3-4cm size,
    and now its a monster. Make sure you have the space for this, and research the growing
    environment...
