ORIGIN/HABITAT: This extremely widespread species is found from Mexico southward through Central America, the Caribbean Islands, and into South America to Peru, Bolivia, and Brazil. Plants have been reported from the state of Veracruz in Mexico at 4250 ft. (1300 m). In Guatemala, plants are rather common in wet forests and open wet banks where they grow as terrestrials, epiphytes, or lithophytes at up to 7850 ft. (2400 m), with several collections reported in Alta Verapaz near Cobán as well as in the departments of Chimaltenango, Huehuetenango, Sacatepéquez, Sololá, Suchitepequez, Zacapa, and Guatemala. Ames & Correll [(1952-1953, and 1965) 1985] reported that although this species is especially common throughout most of Central America and northern South America, it reaches its maximum development in the Andes of Colombia and Peru. In Nicaragua, plants grow as epiphytes in disturbed cloudforest and elfin forest in the departments of Granada and Jinotega at elevation of about 3300—4250 ft. (1000—1300 m). Plants have been reported in Costa Rica near San José at about 7500 ft. (2290 m), in Panama in Chiriquí Province at 4250—6250 ft. 1300—1900 m), and in Colombia in the departments of Antioquia, Choco, and Narino at 5000—6400 ft. (1520—1950 m). There have been innumerable collections in virtually every province in Ecuador except the low-lying coastal ones at elevations generally ranging from 2300—9850 ft. (700—3000 m), with most having been reported at 4900—7200 ft. (1500—2200 m). Collections in Peru have been reported in the department of Cusco at 9500 ft. (2900 m) and in the department of Junín at 4600—5600 ft. (1400—1700 m), and in Bolivia, plants have been reported in the departments of Cochabamba, La Paz, and Santa Cruz at 4600—6250 ft. (1400—1900 m). Plants have also been collected in the Caribbean from Jamaica at 2500--4500 ft. (760—1370 m) and from the Dominican Republic at 4250—4900 ft. (1300—4900 m).
