Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 60 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: 338 plants (based on flask surveys done 09/27/2018 through 04/09/2019)
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 5 - 20 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 09/27/2018 through 04/09/2019)
From one most recently surveyed flask 8 - 15 mm (04/09/2019)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 25 (min.) plants

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Widespread in the Himalayas including Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan, the Khasia Hills of northeastern India, Burma, Thailand, Laos, and Yunnan Province of southwest China. In India, plants grow in indirect light, often on deciduous trees at 1000-3300 ft. (100-1000 m). In Thailand, plants are found in the mountains west of Bangkok near the Burmese border and in the northwestern mountains where collections have been reported near Mae Hong Son (Mae Hong Song), Mae Sot, Mae Sariang (Mae Sarieng), and Mae Ramat. In Burma, plants are reported from Moulmein, the Chin Hills on the western border, near Mandalay, and near Yanka.
