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: 500 plants (based on flask surveys done 04/16/2004 through 06/17/2005)
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 0.2 - 100 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 04/16/2004 through 03/03/2006)
From one most recently surveyed flask 20 - 100 mm (03/03/2006)

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: Brazil. Plants grow in the mountains of southern Brazil in the states of Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul. We have been unable to locate specific habitat elevations, but Pabst and Dungs (1975) indicate that Bifrenaria aureo-fulva grows in intermediate conditions. These conditions are also recommended by the McQueens (1993). Therefore, we have estimated habitat elevation to coincide with the reported growing temperatures, but the temperature extremes resulting from this estimation should be used cautiously until more exact information is available. The other elements in the climate table reflect seasonal weather patterns in the habitat.
