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: 528 plants (based on flask surveys done 06/08/2006 through 01/23/2008)
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 - 25 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 01/29/2007 through 09/16/2008)
From one most recently surveyed flask 10 - 20 mm (09/16/2008)

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Vietnam. This epiphytic orchid is found in the northeastern province of Cao Bang near Tra Linh as well as near Ha Giang. Plants are rather rare in the region, but they may be locally common near ridge tops. Plants are found in open, dry, mossy, primary forests of mixed and coniferous trees that are growing on weathered limestone at 2150-2950 ft. (650-900 m).
