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: 598 plants (based on flask surveys done 12/16/2010 through 08/16/2012)
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 1 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 07/29/2010 through 08/16/2012)
From one most recently surveyed flask 5 - 15 mm (08/16/2012)

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: Mexico, Central America, Colombia, Venezuela, the West Indies, and Florida. In Mexico, plants grow on mountain slopes facing the Atlantic Ocean in the states of Campeche, Chiapas, Hildalgo, Oaxaca, Puebla, Quintana Roo, San Luis Potosí, Tabasco, Tamaulipas, and Veracruz. They are found in open forests and clearings in many types of forests including tropical deciduous, tropical evergreen, and oak. Habitat range is listed as near sea level to 6550 ft. (0-2000 m). Plants usually grow in the midrange of the preceding elevations, however, and in much of Central America, plants are found at 1000-4250 ft. (300-1300 m). In Venezuela, plants were seen in open forests above Pie del Cerro near La Victoria at about 5000 ft. (1520 m) and in cloudforests along the road to Choroní at about 4500 ft. (1370 m). In Puerto Rico, this orchid is widespread and common. It grows in both shady and bright conditions in nearly dry to wet forests at 650-2950 ft. (200-900 m). In the Virgin Islands, however, plants are reported only on St. Croix.
