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: This widespread but uncommon species is found in southern Florida, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, the West Indies, and northern South America to as far south as Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. In Mexico, plants have been collected in the states of Vera Cruz, Guerrero, and Oaxaca. Through most of Central America, plants are mostly found on the Caribbean watershed, but in Costa Rica and Panama they grow in both the Caribbean and Pacific lowlands. Plants normally grow as epiphytes in humid forests at low elevations below 3950 ft. (1200 m).
