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: 337 plants (based on flask surveys done 01/18/2005 through 06/08/2007)
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 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 10/12/2005 through 06/08/2007)
From one most recently surveyed flask 15 - 50 mm (06/08/2007)

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: The Philippines. Plants are found on Luzon Island near Balete Pass in the province of Nueva Ecija as well as the province of Nueva Vizcaya and on the island of Leyte in the Visaya group of islands. The most recent information indicates plants grow as epiphytes at 350-2150 ft. (100-650 m), but some earlier writers reported that plants were found on eastern mountain slopes at 4500 ft. (1372 m).
