Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 570 plants in intermediate-stage flasks, but this may not be enough to make flasks for new requests, because we are still making flasks for prior requests.
You should: Reserve a flask now. Even though we might not have enough plants, if someone drops out ahead of you you many get a flask. If you wait, this will be less likely because you would be further down on the list.
Yield Estimate: 2085 plants (based on flask surveys done 07/18/2012 through 04/18/2022)
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 2 - 70 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 07/18/2012 through 06/20/2022)
From one most recently surveyed flask 30 - 60 mm (06/20/2022)
Expected Flask Price: $49.25 per flask of 25 (min.) plants
Plants require multiple reflaskings so there is an additional charge (included here) for materials and labor.
