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: 788 plants (based on flask surveys done 08/14/2008 through 04/08/2011)
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 - 120 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 01/05/2009 through 07/20/2011)
From one most recently surveyed flask 60 - 100 mm (07/20/2011)

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Mexico. The type specimen was found near Morelia in the state of Michoacán. Plants are now known to grow in the Pacific-facing mountains of central Mexico in the states of Nayarit, Jalisco, Colima, Guanajuato, Guerrero, México, Michoacán, Morelos, and Puebla. They are found in open, dry or humid, deciduous or evergreen forests of oak or oak and pine at 4600–8850 ft. (1400–2700 m). Plants usually grow on scrubby oak trees in exposed locations, but they are sometimes found on mossy rocks.
