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: New Guinea and adjacent islands. Plants are common in lowland swamps and coastal gallery forests through the entire north and west coasts of New Guinea. Plants may be found between sea level and 3900 ft. (0-1200 m), but they most often grow near 500 ft. (150 m). Plants also grow in the Solomon Islands and Australia where they are found at about 1050 ft. (320 m) in the McIlwraith Range on the northern Cape York Peninsula. Plants occur in bright locations with high humidity. They are often found along creeks near waterfalls and rapids where the rocky terrain causes breaks in the forest canopy.
