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: 398 plants (based on flask surveys done 06/22/2021 through 03/21/2022)
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 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 06/22/2021 through 08/04/2022)
From one most recently surveyed flask 40 - 80 mm (08/04/2022)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 25 (min.) plants

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: The Bahama Islands and Florida. This orchid was first collected near Tampa, Florida in 1846 and is the most common epiphytic orchid in Florida. Plants grow at low elevations in conditions that vary from dark, humid, swampy forests to high (relatively), dry, barren trees in full sun, and Luer (1972) reported that plants survive a hard freeze. Plants have been found growing on palm trees and on fence posts. In the Bahamas, plants grow in coppices on Grand Bahama Island and on Andros Island.
