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: 604 plants (based on flask surveys done 11/20/2009 through 03/29/2011)
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 20 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 05/03/2010 through 10/24/2011)
From one most recently surveyed flask 30 - 80 mm (10/24/2011)

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, state of Bahia. Plants are found on the coastal plains to as far as 62 mi. (100 km) inland at elevations up to 1300 ft. (0-400 m). The relatively small habitat starts southwest of Salvador and extends northeastward. The greatest concentrations occur on the elevated plateau bordering the drainage valleys of the Paraguacu River. Cattleya aclandiae commonly grows 10-20 ft. (3-6 m) above the ground on trees with very rough, rumpled bark. Plants grow on the upright trunks and in the crotches of the limbs in areas close to permanent water. Unfortunately, plants are difficult to find in nature due to over collection and the destruction of habitat for agricultural purposes.
