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: Common and widespread throughout southeast Asia. Distribution extends from northeastern India southward through the peninsula region of Burma and Thailand, into Malaya, Sumatra, Java, and Borneo. Plants are also reported near Dalat, Vietnam. Other than D. crumenatum Swartz, D. pachyphyllum is considered the most common orchid on the Thai Islands in the Andaman Sea. In Java, the plants grow from sea level to 3300 ft. (0-1000 m); and in Borneo, they are reported at 1950-6900 ft. (600-2100 m). They are found low on tree trunks in swamps, orchards, open country, and along the roadside. The orchids rarely grow in primary forests and never where light is low.
