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: Venezuela. This species was originally reported to have come from Guyana, but we have seen no recent reports of it occurring there. In Venezuela, it is found in the central and southern highlands in the States of Bolivar and Amazonas, especially in the vicinity of Mt. Roraima, along the Río Carrao, and around Auyán-tepuí. Plants are usually found at 1300–1950 ft. (400–600 m), but they are also reported as high as 3600–6050 ft. (1100–1850 m). Most recent collections have been from lower elevations. Plants grow at the edge of forests, almost always near rivers or streams. Unconfirmed reports indicate that Cattleya lawrenceana also grows in northern Brazil, but those reports may be the result of misidentification and should actually refer to a different species.
