Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 150 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: 278 plants (based on flask surveys done 05/25/2021 )
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 - 20 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 05/25/2021 through 09/07/2021)
From one most recently surveyed flask 5 - 20 mm (09/07/2021)
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: Brazil. Plants grow in a very small area about 60 mi. (100 km) east of the city of Rio de Janeiro. They occur on the south or seaward-facing slopes of the Serra Taquarucu at 1800-3200 ft. (550-980 m). This mountain range, which is on the southern side of the Organ Mountains, is the first east-west barrier of significant height over which moisture-laden ocean air must pass. The habitat is one of the wettest places in Brazil. Some reports indicate that Cattleya dormaniana grows near the ground on dead, rotting wood of moss-covered fallen trees and stumps. Dr. Fowlie, however, reported that plants grow on a lichen and fungus covered species of Aspidosperma, a living tree, with bark that is so soft and rotten that it crumbles easily in the hand.
