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: Florida in the USA, the West Indies, Mexico, Central America, and southward into central South America. Plants usually grow below 3300 ft. (1000 m), but in some habitats, they are found as high as 4250–4900 ft. (1300–1500 m). This orchid is usually attached to the twigs and branches of trees or bushes, along streams in humid regions that have relatively dry winters. Visitors to the habitat report that this species quickly becomes a weed in moist forest regions, growing in hedges and ornamental trees and shrubs.
