Flask Information
Availability: We have approximately 890 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: 1258 plants (based on flask surveys done 09/06/2021 through 05/16/2022)
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 2 - 70 mm plants (based on flask surveys done 12/31/2021 through 08/05/2022)
From one most recently surveyed flask 40 - 70 mm (08/05/2022)
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: Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. In Mexico, plants are found in the mountains on the Gulf of Mexico side of the country in the states of Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosí, Hidalgo, Querétaro, Puebla, Veracruz, Oaxaca, and Chiapas. They normally grow in warm oak forests with tropical deciduous trees at 3950–5250 ft. (1200–1600 m). The habitat is varied, however, and plants may grow somewhat higher or lower in cooler or hotter climates in both shady and sunny locations. The varied habitat indicates an adaptability that explains why plants are usually considered easy to cultivate. On the Pacific side of the mountains, plants are found in the state of Oaxaca and possibly in Guerrero and Jalisco as well. They are most often found in oak trees in humid forests at 5250–5900 ft. (1600–1800 m), but they occasionally grow on rocks. This species is also reported in Guatemala and Honduras, but we found no information about habitat location and elevation in these countries.
