ORIGIN/HABITAT: Malagasy (Madagascar). This orchid is found in the hot lowlands along almost the entire east coast of Malagasy Island from Taôlanaro (Fort Dauphin) near the south end of the island to as far north as Antalaha. Plants are also reported from Sainte-Marie Island, which lies slightly offshore of the north-central east coast. Plants grow on the trunks of trees in light shade or diffused light at the edge of woods, usually at less than 350 ft. (100 m). They are always found in locations where there is plenty of air movement and are found most often on sloping tree trunks and crotches with roots creeping over the bark and then dangling in air, sometimes for several feet (meters). The plants grow in coastal areas with heavy annual rainfall that is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year with no pronounced dry season.
