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 03/11/2002 through 12/15/2003)
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 20 - 35 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 06/09/2004 )
From one most recently surveyed flask 20 - 35 mm (06/09/2004)

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: Brazil. This miniature epiphytic species is found at moderate elevations in the cool, damp mountain areas of the southeastern states of Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul, with some writers reporting its occurrence in Rio de Janeiro and São Papule. Habitat elevation has not been reported, so we have estimated it as being near sea level because some growers have reported these plants require intermediate to warm conditions. The data reveals that even near sea level, however, winter minimum temperatures in the region are considerably cooler than the values suggested by those growers.
