Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 33 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: 151 plants (based on flask surveys done 10/18/2017 through 12/05/2019)
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 30 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 06/28/2018 through 10/19/2019)
From one most recently surveyed flask 50 mm (10/19/2019)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 25 (min.) plants
