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: Southern Mexico and Central America including Nicaragua. Some writers report that the habitat extends into Costa Rica, Panama, and Venezuela, but Dressler (1993) considers it unlikely that it will be found in Costa Rica or Panama. It is rather rare, but it has been found in numerous locations throughout its range. In Mexico, plants are found in the States of Jalisco and Chiapas at up to 2300 ft. (700 m), but some writers question whether or not the plants from Jalisco were actually Clowesia russelliana. In McVaugh (1985), it is reported that Dodson considers the range of this species to extend from Chiapas to Nicaragua. In Belize, plants are found near Toledo at 200–300 ft. (60–90 m). In Guatemala, plants grow near Patulúl on trees in open mountain forests near 1950 ft. (600 m). Plants are found in several locations in El Salvador at 350–3300 ft. (100–1000 m) and at numerous locations in Nicaragua, where plants grow in fairly dry, open forests from near sea level to 0–2800 ft. (0-850 m). In Venezuela, plants identified as Clowesia russelliana were found in forests above El Limón and near Tiara at about 3950 ft. (1200 m).
