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: 638 plants (based on flask surveys done 08/20/2021 through 05/03/2023)
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 5 - 80 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 08/20/2021 through 08/31/2023)
From one most recently surveyed flask 30 - 80 mm (08/31/2023)
Expected Flask Price: $40.00 per flask of 25 (min.) plants

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Mexico, Central America, Colombia, and Venezuela. This species is widespread in Mexico along the Gulf of Mexico coast southward from Tampico, and plants are also found on the Pacific coast in the state of Chiapas. The habitat continues south through Central America, along both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, and extends into northern Venezuela and Colombia. Collections have also been reported on islands in the West Indies. Plants are found in low lying coastal regions, generally below 1640 ft. (500 m), growing on either trees in lowland tropical forests and mangrove swamps, or on exposed rocks and cliffs near the shore.
