Flask Information
Availability: We have sold all of the flasks for this item.
You should: Consider getting individual plants or compots instead of a flask.
You can place a "Notify Flask Recipients" Request, and either we or a flask recipient may contact you when plants are available.

You may also place a "Notify Retries" Request, and if an identical pollination (the same parents) is done again, we'll let you know.

You may reserve a flask, but it's very unlikely you'll get one ...this could only happen if we found a flask that we didn't know we had.
Yield Estimate: 358 plants (based on flask surveys done 04/01/2004 through 05/11/2004)
Yield estimates are only approximate, but may appear to be fairly exact numbers because they are a combination of large rough estimates in remaining mother flasks and more accurate small estimates in reflasks.
Plantlet Sizes: From many flasks 15 - 50 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 04/01/2004 through 07/19/2004)
From one most recently surveyed flask 25 - 40 mm (07/19/2004)

The origin/habitat information below is supplied courtesy of Charles and Margaret Baker

The following information is based on the name of the plant provided by the donor, and assumes that the name is correct. If the plant has been misidentified, then the following information may not be correct.
This text is copyrighted by the Bakers and may not be reproduced without permission.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: ORIGIN/HABITAT: Widespread from Malaya through Sumatra, Java, and the rest of Indonesia. Distribution extends to Borneo, the Philippines, New Guinea, and Australia. In Java, plants were once common in the southern half of West and Central Java, especially near the coast, but populations are now greatly diminished. Plants have been found in East Java growing between sea level and 2000 ft. (610 m). Plants may still be found in small, isolated pockets near the West Java/Central Java border where they grow on trees overhanging the sea. In this extended range, plants may grow high in tall trees in dense forests or on tree branches sometimes so close to the ocean that the plants are washed by salt spray. In Borneo, plants are found in Sabah on Mt. Kinabalu, and in Kalimantan and Sarawak at undisclosed locations. Plants grow in lower mountain forests from near sea level to about 4900 ft. (1500 m) and seem to grow mostly in regions that experience a distinct but short dry season. in the Philippines, plants are found in the southern islands of Balabac, Bancalan, Lambugan, Palawan and Sulu and Tawitawi in the Sulu Archipelago. In this region, plants are found at elevations up to 1650 ft. (500 m).
