Pod Parent Blooming Plant
Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Temperature range W (70-90°F). From a rainforest, so it should like tons of water, but allow the roots plenty of air.
Comments: Monopodial, and vanda-like, but the leaves are not fleshy. The flowers smell strongly of grapes (snails love 'em!). The flowers (about 4 cm across) last up to 2 weeks if not eaten by snails.

Parent plant: From Palau. This specimen is growing on a live palm in bright light. It has a vine-like habit and has climbed over 12 feet since being mounted in its present location.

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: 4 plants (based on flask surveys done 02/16/2005 )
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 1 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 02/13/2004 )
From one most recently surveyed flask 1 mm (02/13/2004)

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: Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo, the Philippines, and Java. In Malaya, plants have been found in many locations, growing in primary forests in both the lowlands and the mountains. In Sumatra, plants have been collected from Aceh Province in the north, from near Bukit Tinggi in West Sumatra, from near Palembang in south Sumatra, from Lubuk Tandai in Bengkulu, and from the Mentawai Islands. In Borneo, plants have been found Brunei, Kalimantan, Sabah, and Sarawak where they grow in a variety of habitats from peat swamps in the lowlands to hill forests, to lower montane forests at 150-3300 ft. (50-1000 m). Although reported by many writers as occurring in the Philippines, neither Valmayor (1984) or Cootes (1999) reported details of its occurrence there.
