Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 270 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: 720 plants (based on flask surveys done 05/01/2021 through 09/16/2023)
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 2 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 05/01/2021 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
