Offspring photos are siblings of the plants you would receive.
Comments: Received as a spontaneous capsule that came with a plant from Colombia labeled Encyclia livida which was not in bloom, so it couldn't be verified. After blooming the offspring, we now know it's Prosthechea grammatoglossa.

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: 320 plants (based on flask surveys done 06/13/2005 through 09/06/2006)
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 5 - 70 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 06/13/2005 through 01/29/2007)
From one most recently surveyed flask 30 - 70 mm (01/29/2007)
