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.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Brazil. Plants grow in the mountains of southern Brazil in the states of Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul. We have been unable to locate specific habitat elevations, but Pabst and Dungs (1975) indicate that Bifrenaria aureo-fulva grows in intermediate conditions. These conditions are also recommended by the McQueens (1993). Therefore, we have estimated habitat elevation to coincide with the reported growing temperatures, but the temperature extremes resulting from this estimation should be used cautiously until more exact information is available. The other elements in the climate table reflect seasonal weather patterns in the habitat.
