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: Brazil near Rio De Janeiro. Plants grow on almost vertical, east facing rock cliffs at 700-2600 ft. (200-800 m). The plants grow exposed to strong winds and almost full sun with their roots buried in cracks in the rock face that contain detritus but little in the way of vegetable matter.
