Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: This plant was dry rested for about 3 months. Winter temps were from 50 to 65°F in winter and 60 to 100°F in the summer months. Plant receives good air circulation, is misted 2 times a day and is in 50% humidity.
 
Comments: Parent plant: Plant from Gold Country Orchids, a gift from Alan Koch in about 2002, so this may be the same as the 'GC' cultivar. 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: 300 plants (based on flask surveys done 12/28/2005 )
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 30 - 70 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 04/14/2006 through 05/19/2006)
From one most recently surveyed flask 40 - 70 mm (05/19/2006)
