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: Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Plants in Laos have been reported from near Capra, Bang Muc, and Nam Muong Noi. In Vietnam, This small, terrestrial orchid has been found at locations from near Dalat in the south to the Red River Delta and near Cao Bang in the north. The plants, which are rare in the Cao Bang area, grow in open, secondary grasslands. Habitat elevation was not given, but the location on the Red River Delta indicates an elevation that is not very high. The following climate table and cultural suggestions are estimated based on this assumption and should, therefore, be used rather cautiously until the actual elevation is known. Hawkes (1965) reported that this orchid is widely naturalized in central and southern Florida, having been introduced into the area as an adventive with Centipede Grass (Eremochloa aphiuroides) from China.
