Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 120 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: 488 plants (based on flask surveys done 04/09/2019 through 05/18/2021)
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 4 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 04/09/2019 through 06/03/2021)
From one most recently surveyed flask 60 - 80 mm (06/03/2021)
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: Extreme southern Florida, the Bahamas, and Cuba with distribution continuing southward through the other islands of the Caribbean into Surinam, Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru in northern South America. This orchid was first found in Florida in 1903 growing in a densely wooded hammock near Homestead in Dade County. Luer (1972) reported that although this orchid was originally found in several similar locations in southern Florida, by 1972 the plants had been completely removed from all but one site which was just within the boundaries of the Everglades National Park. In Cuba, plants are known from near San Juan, the Isle of Pines, the Sierra de Cubitas, and the Camagüey region. Plants are known from several areas in Jamaica. In Venezuela, plants have been found in the state of Bolívar along the Río Paragua, but no other details were reported. In Colombia, plants grow in hot lowland regions at elevations below 3300 ft. (1000 m). In Ecuador, plants are found in wet forests at 650-1500 ft. (200-450 m), with collections reported in the province of Napo and in Sucumbios. In Peru, plants have been collected in the department of San Martín where they were growing high on tree trunks in wet forest at 1300 ft. (400 m) and in the department of Pasco where plants were growing in tropical rain forest near Oxapampa at 800 ft. (250 m).
