Pod Parent Flowers
Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Plants must be grown in live sphagnum. Do not fertilize the plants, this will kill the sphagnum. Water only with rainwater or RO water. Rainwater is best depending on your air quality and your roofwater collection system, because if it's healthy it feeds the sphagnum with weak nutrients from roof debris. Plant MUST get cold in the winter but not freeze. If your outdoor temperature goes below freezing, keep the plants in pots and refrigerate them or put them in a protected location. If your conditions are right you can grow them in an artificial bog.

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: 100 plants (based on flask surveys done 11/25/2002 through 09/09/2003)
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 1 - 50 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 03/04/2003 through 09/09/2003)
From one most recently surveyed flask 1 - 4 mm (09/09/2003)
