Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 90 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: 608 plants (based on flask surveys done 02/28/2022 through 07/29/2023)
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 40 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 06/18/2022 through 04/28/2024)
From one most recently surveyed flask 50 - 80 mm (04/28/2024)
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: New Guinea and adjacent islands. Plants are common in lowland swamps and coastal gallery forests through the entire north and west coasts of New Guinea. Plants may be found between sea level and 3900 ft. (0-1200 m), but they most often grow near 500 ft. (150 m). Plants also grow in the Solomon Islands and Australia where they are found at about 1050 ft. (320 m) in the McIlwraith Range on the northern Cape York Peninsula. Plants occur in bright locations with high humidity. They are often found along creeks near waterfalls and rapids where the rocky terrain causes breaks in the forest canopy.
