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: Northeast Myanmar (Burma) and possibly southwest China. In Burma, plants are found in the mountains along the Tami River near Putao at 3950-4900 ft. (1200-1500 m). They usually grow on the forest floor in shady locations near the base of trees and have their roots in deep leaf litter over rocky soil on steep slopes. Plants may also be found on cliff faces, growing on moss covered rocks with only a few, loosely attached roots. Plants are also reported from Yunnan Province in southwest China, although information on specific collection sites has not been given. There is some speculation that plants imported from China were brought in from Myanmar (Burma) and then re-exported. However, it is entirely possible that Paphiopedilum wardii does exist along the upper Salween River.
