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: Java, Borneo, Sumatra, Thailand, and Vietnam. In Java, plants are found in both east and west Java, but they are quite common in the east where they grow on the drier, more seasonal northern faces of the mountains at 2950-5500 ft. (900-1670 m). Plants usually grow as trunk epiphytes in fairly open situations. These plants have been found at several locations in peninsular Thailand, while collections have been reported from Dalat and other locations in Vietnam, but details of habitat elevation were not given for plants from these regions. Although reported as occurring in Borneo, specific habitat details were not given. We have been able to find details for only var. exappendiculatum J. J. Smith in Sumatra.
