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: 210 plants (based on flask surveys done 09/29/2010 through 04/27/2011)
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 50 - 110 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 01/31/2011 through 08/30/2011)
From one most recently surveyed flask 60 - 110 mm (08/30/2011)

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Originally found in Colombia near Cartagena, Oncidium cebolleta, the most widely distributed of all Oncidium species, is now known to occur from Mexico through the West Indies and Central and South America to as far south as Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. These plants generally grow at below 1950 ft. (600 m) in semiarid regions or in areas with a pronounced dry season. Plants have, however, been reported from moist forest areas and from elevations as high as 5900 ft. (1800 m). In Mexico, these plants grow as epiphytes in both semiarid scrub and humid forests from sea level to 5900 ft. (1800 m), with reports of plants from as high as 7850 ft. (2400 m), and have been reported from the states of Chiapas, Guerrero, Jalisco, México, Michoacán, Morelos, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Sinaloa, Sonora, Veracruz, and Yucatán. Dunsterville and Garay (1961) reported this species as, "Common in most relatively hot parts of Venezuela with fairly long dry season, e.g. surroundings of Lake Valencia." In Surinam, plants are known only from the coastal plain; but in Brazil they are found almost throughout the tropical regions, with occurrences reported in the Amazon Basin as well as the northeast, southeast, and the central western regions including the states of Acre, Amazonas, Pará, Piaui, Pernambuco, Bahia, Espírito Santo, Goiás, Tocantins, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, Roraima, and São Paulo. In Peru, plants discussed as Oncidium sprucei Lindley by Dodson and Bennett (1989) were found in the Department of San Martin. They were growing as epiphytes in tropical wet forest in bright light on old citrus trees near Moyobamba and about 3 mi. (5 km) south of Tocache at 1300 ft. (400 m).
