ORIGIN/HABITAT: Southwest Mexico and Central America including Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. Plants usually grow in pine-oak forests on rocky hills at up to 4900 ft. (1500 m) on the Pacific-facing side of the mountains. In Mexico, however, plants are found in the state of Veracruz as well as Chiapas and Oaxaca. They usually grow on the horizontal limbs of oak trees in shallow moss and accumulated debris.
