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: 510 plants (based on flask surveys done 01/21/2004 through 10/20/2006)
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 15 - 45 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 04/12/2004 through 01/29/2007)
From one most recently surveyed flask 20 - 35 mm (01/29/2007)

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: Sikkim, Bengal, Thailand, Laos, Malaya, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Philippine Islands. The type specimen was collected from Lahat near Palembang in southern Sumatra at about 150 ft. (50 m). We found specific habitat information for two habitat locations. One habitat near Satun, in southern peninsular Thailand, is close to the Malayan border. The Philippine collection occurred in Zambales Province on Luzon Island, where plants grow on tree trunks in mossy forests at 1300 ft. (400 m). Holttum (1964) thought that this plant might be found in the Malayan State of Kedah across the border from the known habitat in Thailand. Wood & Cribb (1994) reported that the Borneo habitat is unknown, but the plant is found in Kalamantan and Sarawak. We found no habitat information for any of the other reported collection areas.
