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: 270 plants (based on flask surveys done 07/01/2009 through 08/06/2009)
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 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 11/03/2009 through 01/04/2010)
From one most recently surveyed flask 30 - 60 mm (01/04/2010)

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: Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In Mexico, plants are found in the States of Veracruz and Chiapas where they grow in shady forests at 1000-3300 ft. (300-1000 m). Over most of their range, these plants grow in wet mountain forests on slopes facing the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean at elevations up to about 5900 ft. (1800 m). Although usually epiphytic, plants are sometimes found growing lithophytically.
