Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 450 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: 898 plants (based on flask surveys done 11/26/2021 through 03/31/2022)
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 5 - 40 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 11/26/2021 through 06/23/2022)
From one most recently surveyed flask 20 - 40 mm (06/23/2022)
Expected Flask Price: $43.75 per flask of 16 (min.) plants
Plants require 2 or more years in flask so there is an additional charge (included) for materials and labor. 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: Peru, Colombia, and possibly Brazil. In Peru, Cattleya rex grows on the eastern slopes of the Andes in the Department of San Martin near Moyobamba and Rioja. Plants are most often found at 2300-3950 ft. (700-1200 m) in wet mountain forests, where they grow on the top branches of very tall trees. This species does not readily re-establish on younger trees after the large ones are cut. Plants are reportedly found Colombia and Brazil, but we found no specific information abut the habitat in these regions. Once abundant, this species is now very scarce and considered endangered, primarily because of habitat destruction.
