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: Mexico, southward to Nicaragua through Guatemala, and Honduras. Plants were first found near Xalapa (Jalapa), Mexico and later not far from Veracruz. Rhyncholaelia glauca occurs over a wide area, but it is not common in any of its habitats. Plants are often grow either on the surface of the ground or in trees in dry, open mountain forests at 3950-4920 ft. (1200-1500 m). However, they occasionally grow at lower elevations in dense tropical forests.
