Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 90 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: 308 plants (based on flask surveys done 06/06/2019 through 11/18/2019)
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 10 - 40 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 06/06/2019 through 11/18/2019)
From one most recently surveyed flask 15 - 40 mm (11/18/2019)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 25 (min.) plants
