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: ORIGIN/HABITAT: This is a common and variable species that is widely distributed from Florida through the Caribbean Islands and the remainder of tropical and subtropical North and South America to as far south as southeastern Brazil. In Florida, plants are more abundant in the central part of the state, with occurrence less common northward to the Georgia border and southward to the Florida Keys. In Peru, Schweinfurth (1958-1961) reported that Spiranthes orchioides (Swartz) Richard was found in the department of Cuzco below Machu-Picchu where it was growing on dry granite slopes at 6900 ft. (2100 m), and plants were also found in the department of Junín at 1950 ft. (600 m) where they were growing on a "sandy brushy river flat."
