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: Colombia and Ecuador. For many years, plants were found only in western Colombia where they grew on the old road between Cali and Buenaventura at about 2600 ft. (800 m). More recently, however, populations were discovered in southern Ecuador where they grew on both the eastern and western slopes of the Andes at about 3950 ft. (1200 m). The habitat is always described as extremely wet mountain forest.
