ORIGIN/HABITAT: Western Borneo. Plants were originally found in Sarawak where they were relatively common. They are now rare in their historic habitats; but in recent years, populations have been found in Kalimantan and at several locations in Sabah. Plants grow in the hot, moist lowlands, and collections have been reported from the lower slopes of Mt. Kinabalu on the Kota Belud side of the mountain.
