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: Brazil. Habitat location and elevation for this species is uncertain. As it was previously considered a variety of Laelia lucasiana, however, we have elected to use the habitat information reported for that species with Hoffmannseggella fournieri. The resulting climate table and cultural suggestions should be used with caution, however. Plants originally identified as Laelia lucasiana were found in the state of Minas Gerais east of Belo Horizonte in the Serra do Piedade, Serra da Caraca, and Serra de Ouro Prêto. They grow among lichens in fully exposed locations at 4600-5600 ft. (1400-1700 m).
