Yield Estimate: 1508 plants (based on flask surveys done 05/01/2019 through 03/09/2020)
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.

From one most recently surveyed flask 40 - 70 mm (07/10/2020)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 16 (min.) plants
