Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 90 plants in intermediate-stage flasks available for immediate reflasking for you. Because the plants are already so far along, these flasks will take a relatively short time to mature.
You should: Reserve a flask now so that we can make it for you. If you don't reserve, the plants won't be reflasked.
Yield Estimate: 218 plants (based on flask surveys done 11/20/2019 )
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 10 - 25 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 11/20/2019 )
From one most recently surveyed flask 15 - 25 mm (11/20/2019)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 25 (min.) plants

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: China. This terrestrial orchid is distributed in southern Shaanxi and Gansu Provinces as well as in the provinces of Hubei, Hunan, Guangxi, Sichuan, Guizhou, and Yunnan. Plants grow in rocky and grassy places in open forests and along valleys at 2950-7850 ft. (900-2400 m). This orchid is found in the same type of habitat in many of the same regions as Bletilla striata (Thunberg ex Murray) Rchb. f., but usually at somewhat lower elevations. We would, therefore, expect Bletilla ochracea to be not quite as cold-hardy as Bletilla striata.
