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, Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. In Mexico, plants are reported from the States of Chiapas and Veracruz. They are usually found at 1950-6250 ft. (600-1900 m), but plants have been found as low as 1150 ft. (350 m) near Minatitlán in Veracruz State. In Mexico, plants grow as on trees in open woodlands or in shady canyons. Plants identified as Oncidium hintonii L. O. Williams from the Pacific slopes in the states of Nayarit, Jalisco, Michoacán, and Guerrero were discussed by McVaugh (1985). These plants grow in sparse oak forest or in tropical, deciduous forest at 3300-3950 ft. (1000-1200 m). In Guatemala, plants grow in forests at up to 6550 ft. (2000 m). In other regions, they are found in wet, lower mountain forests. In Nicaragua, plants are found in Jinotega in wet mountain forests at 3600 ft. (1100 m). In El Salvador plants are found on Volcán Chingo at 3300-3950 ft. (1000-1200 m).
