Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Temperature range I (60-83°F)
 
Comments: The identity of the species is not known, but is most likely to be Cymbidium bicolor ssp. pubescens. Another (less likely) possibility is Cymbidium dayanum. While both these species occur in Central Sulawesi, C. bicolor (the more common of the two) can be found from sea-level to 1700 meters, while C. dayanum (which is rare) usually occur below 500 meters.

Parent plant: The plant is a Cymbidium species growing in montane forest at 1200 meters altitude in Central Sulawesi. The species is most likely to be Cymbidium bicolor ssp. pubescens. The plant was growing about 3 meters above the ground on the side of a narrow tree trunk. It had 4-5 very narrow erect stiff leaves per pseudobulb. The inflorescence, which had 6 ripe capsules but no flowers, was arching and 30 cm long. Medium-sized plant.

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: 60 plants (based on flask surveys done 05/04/2005 )
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 40 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 08/10/2005 )
From one most recently surveyed flask 40 - 80 mm (08/10/2005)

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: Widespread from Sikkim and northeastern India across Myanmar (formerly Burma), through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, China, Taiwan, Japan, the Ryukyu Islands, Malaya, Sumatra, Borneo, the Celebes, and the Philippines. In Thailand, plants have been collected in the northern mountains in the vicinity of Chiengmai at 3600-5250 ft. (1100-1600 m). In Malaya, plants have been found at various locations at 500-3950 ft. (150-1200 m) and at locations in eastern and southeastern Thailand at 2600-3950 ft. (800-1200 m). In China, plants are found on trees in sparse woods or on cliffs along ravines at 1000-5250 ft. (300-1600 m) in southern Fujian, Taiwan, Guangdong, Hainan, Guangxi, and Yunnan. Plants have been found in many provinces in Sumatra at 1950-4900 ft. (600-1500 m), growing mostly low on tree trunks or on steep earth slopes. In the Philippines, this orchid has been found on Luzon in the provinces of Benguet, Mountain Province, and Nueva Vizcaya. Plants usually grow as a terrestrial, but it is also found in hollow logs on trees at 1000-5900 ft. (300-1800 m).
