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: 30 plants (based on flask surveys done 12/06/2007 )
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 50 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 05/21/2008 )
From one most recently surveyed flask 50 - 80 mm (05/21/2008)

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: Northern Colombia and Panama. Plants grow on trees or as semiterrestrials on the surface of the ground in low-elevation forests. Escobar (1991) reports that plants are found at 3300-5900 ft. (1000-1800 m). They were first collected in Colombia in the Department of Antioquia and have since been found in a variety of other locations. In Panama, they have been found along the Río Trinidad and near Lake Gatún. Habitat location and elevation are not available for the Colombia collection sites, but early writings reported that these fairly rare plants were native to the temperate forests of Antioquia. Always uncommon, this species is now reported to be very scarce in its natural habitat. Actual habitat elevation is not known for certain, so the following temperatures should be used somewhat cautiously.
