Flask Information
Availability: The seeds have germinated in the mother flasks.
You should: Reserve flasks right now.
Please only reserve if you are committing to purchase the flasks when they are ready later.

We only make flasks for people who request them, so you must make a reservation for us to do the work. If you don't reserve now, there will likely not be enough flasks made to cover your later need. If you wait to reserve until after we begin reflasking into final maturing flasks, then you will lose your place in line. Otherwise, your original notification request acts as your place-holder, keeping you earlier in line.
Yield Estimate: 600 plants (based on flask surveys done 12/04/2019 through 01/23/2020)
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.
Plantlet Sizes: From many flasks 2 - 5 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 12/04/2019 through 01/23/2020)
From one most recently surveyed flask 2 - 4 mm (01/23/2020)
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: Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In Nicaragua, plants grow on trees in dry hilly pastures and in roadside forests. Near Matagalpa and Managua they have been found at 1950-3300 ft. (600-1000 m). In Mexico, plants grow on trees on protected hillsides and in stream-valleys at 1000-3600 ft. (300-1100 m) on Pacific-facing slopes. The habitat extends from the State of Sinaloa southward to the border with Guatemala. Plants are also reported on the Revillagigedo Islands, which are located about 450 mi. (725 km) off the coast of the State of Colima.
