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: 270 plants (based on flask surveys done 04/07/2003 through 10/06/2004)
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 25 - 70 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 01/02/2004 through 04/22/2005)
From one most recently surveyed flask 35 - 55 mm (04/22/2005)

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: Sri Lanka (Ceylon). This orchid has been collected at several locations with collections reported at 2100-2500 ft. (640-760 m). Although reported as occurring in Sikkim and other places in the Himalayan region, Seidenfaden (1980) questioned the identity of these plants, and Pearce & Cribb (2002) agreed with Seidenfaden and indicated that the plants from outside Sri Lanka were probably Flickingeria fugax (Rchb. f) Seidenfaden and not Flickingeria macraei.
