Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 150 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: 478 plants (based on flask surveys done 07/09/2018 through 02/07/2019)
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 2 - 70 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 07/09/2018 through 06/29/2019)
From one most recently surveyed flask 40 - 70 mm (06/29/2019)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 16 (min.) plants
Plants proliferate if crowded, so are planted more sparsely than usual.

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: Brazil. Plants are most often found in forests within a few miles of the coast and on nearby offshore islands. The habitat extends from the State of Rio de Janeiro southward through the States of São Paulo, Parana, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul. Plants usually grow in coastal or streamside swamps near sea level, but they are sometimes found at 1000 ft. (300 m). Cattleya intermedia usually grows low trees in shady area or in the upper branches in high light conditions. The orchid is also found on rocks and on the ground where sand dunes are covered with trees and brush. The dunes have a layer of organic matter which retains water like a sponge. Plants are reported from Uruguay and Paraguay, but habitat details were not given.
