ORIGIN/HABITAT: Widespread in the Pacific Islands, including Java, Ambon, Ternate Island, Sulawesi (Celebes), Borneo, the Philippines, Palau, Irian Jaya (western New Guinea), the Solomon and Santa Cruz Islands, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Fiji, and Samoa. Plants usually grow on trees in hot jungles from near sea level to about 3950 ft. (1200 m); but in some areas, they are found as high as 5600 ft. (1700 m). They usually grow about half way up large tree trunks in primary forests in light to moderate shade.
