Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 540 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: 940 plants (based on flask surveys done 12/30/2018 through 12/31/2018)
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 - 15 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 12/30/2018 through 12/31/2018)
From one most recently surveyed flask 8 - 12 mm (12/31/2018)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 16 (min.) plants
Plants proliferate if crowded, so are planted more sparsely than usual.

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. This very rare species is found on the eastern slopes of Pico do Itambé in the central part of Minas Gerais at 4250–5250 ft. (1300–1600 m). Plants are attached to trees that grow in the bottom of steep-sided rocky gulches. Even during the dry season, these gullies normally have at least a trickle of flowing water.
