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: Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, and Peru. In Venezuela, plants have been reported near Caracas in the Federal District. The type specimen was discovered in Brazil. Plants are found in the Atlantic-facing foothills in the states of Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paraná, and Rio Grande do Sul. Miller & Warren (1994) reported finding only one colony in that in the Macaé de Cima region in the coastal mountains northeast of Rio de Janeiro. They reported that these plants were found at 3300 ft. (1000 m) on the edge of a dry, north-facing slope in a permanent natural pasture, and indicated that Hoehne had suggested that this species may be more at home in the drier interior portions of the state. In Peru, Schweinfurth (1958-1961) reports collections in the department of Loreto south of Moyobamba at 2600-2950 ft. (800-900 m) between clusters of bushes and in the department of San Martín near San Roque plants were growing in forest at 4450-4900 ft. (1350-1500 m)
