Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 40 plants in intermediate-stage flasks, but this may not be enough to make flasks for new requests, because we are still making flasks for prior requests.
You should: Reserve a flask now. Even though we might not have enough plants, if someone drops out ahead of you you many get a flask. If you wait, this will be less likely because you would be further down on the list.
Yield Estimate: 468 plants (based on flask surveys done 02/22/2022 through 05/05/2023)
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 4 - 70 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 02/22/2022 through 05/17/2023)
From one most recently surveyed flask 15 - 40 mm (05/17/2023)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 25 (min.) plants

The origin/habitat information below is supplied courtesy of Charles and Margaret Baker

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Java. Plants are found near the southeast coast at 650-2300 ft. (200-700 m). They usually grow on cliffs of soft, crumbling limestone, where their roots extend into moss and leafy humus near a water seepage. Comber (1990) reported, "Formerly very common in the low hills south of G. Semeru in East Java at from 450-770 m, where it grew both in the soil and on rocks on steep hillsides. Unfortunately in the years 1965-1980 it was extensively collected for sale locally and abroad until it is now very difficult to find. Luckily there are still a few flowering plants on almost inaccessible cliffs in this area."
