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: 375 plants (based on flask surveys done 02/26/2016 through 06/29/2018)
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 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 02/26/2016 through 10/03/2018)
From one most recently surveyed flask 40 - 80 mm (10/03/2018)

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: Belize, southeastern Guatemala, Central America, Venezuela, Colombia, Trinidad, and northwestern Ecuador. Although plants are distributed over a very large area, they are uncommon throughout much of their range, particularly in northern Central America, but they are more common in other parts of the habitat. In Guatemala and Belize, plants are found in swamps and wet forests at low elevations up to 500 ft. (150 m). In Nicaragua, plants grow in tall evergreen forests, open pastures, and on fence rows from sea level to 1650 ft. (0–500 m). In Costa Rica, plants are abundant in dry forests on both the Pacific and Caribbean side of the dividing mountains. In Panama, they are reported near Chiriquí Lagoon and in open woods east of Panama City as well as several other locations. Plants are common in the valley around Caracas and throughout northern Venezuela. In Ecuador, plants are found near the northwest coast in Esmeraldas Province, where they grow in dry tropical forests below 150 ft. (50 m).
