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: 440 plants (based on flask surveys done 08/12/2003 through 02/11/2004)
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 5 - 70 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 08/12/2003 through 07/19/2004)
From one most recently surveyed flask 35 - 50 mm (07/19/2004)

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: Colombia and Ecuador. For many years, plants were found only in western Colombia where they grew on the old road between Cali and Buenaventura at about 2600 ft. (800 m). More recently, however, populations were discovered in southern Ecuador where they grew on both the eastern and western slopes of the Andes at about 3950 ft. (1200 m). The habitat is always described as extremely wet mountain forest.
