ORIGIN/HABITAT: The Philippines. Plants are found on Luzon Island near Balete Pass in the province of Nueva Ecija as well as the province of Nueva Vizcaya and on the island of Leyte in the Visaya group of islands. The most recent information indicates plants grow as epiphytes at 350-2150 ft. (100-650 m), but some earlier writers reported that plants were found on eastern mountain slopes at 4500 ft. (1372 m).
