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.
See if we have plants available in the greenhouse.
Yield Estimate: 300 plants (based on flask surveys done 11/18/2009 through 03/07/2012)
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 20 - 110 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 04/05/2010 through 03/07/2012)
From one most recently surveyed flask 20 - 30 mm (03/07/2012)

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: Brazil. This orchid is found in the states Rio de Janeiro, MInas Gerais, São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul. Other than reports that it comes from mountain areas of the listed states, few details of habitat location, type, and elevation have been recorded. The McQueens (1993) report that these plants grow well in an intermediate environment with moderately bright light and a dry winter rest. On the other hand, Hawkes (1965) indicated this orchid requires intermediate to warm conditions, although plants growing at even low elevations in Rio Grande do Sul experience relatively cool winter temperatures. Armed with this information, we have estimated habitat location and elevation. Growers should use the resulting conditions with a great deal of caution, however.
