ORIGIN/HABITAT: New Guinea. Found throughout the island. Schlechter (1982 translation) reported plants growing on trees in the forests of the Bismarck Range at about 1950 ft. (600 m). O'Byrne (1994) reported plants found at several locations in the Central Province of Papua New Guinea at elevations of 250-1500 ft. (80-450 m) and indicated that plants may be found from near sea level to at least 1950 ft. (600 m). O'Byrne (1994) stated, "It grows in the canopy-layer branches of large trees in primary rainforest and in semideciduous forest but may also be found in savannah thickets or mangrove swamps."
