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: Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize. In Mexico, plants are known only from the eastern slopes and foothills in Chiapas where they grow as epiphytes in the lowlands and lower mountain rainforest from 1000—4900 ft. (300—1500 m). Plants reportedly also occur in Guatemala and Belize, but we have been unable to find any specific information on the habitat in those areas.
