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: ORIGIN/HABITAT: Widespread from Malaya through Sumatra, Java, and the rest of Indonesia. Distribution extends to Borneo, the Philippines, New Guinea, and Australia. In Java, plants were once common in the southern half of West and Central Java, especially near the coast, but populations are now greatly diminished. Plants have been found in East Java growing between sea level and 2000 ft. (610 m). Plants may still be found in small, isolated pockets near the West Java/Central Java border where they grow on trees overhanging the sea. In this extended range, plants may grow high in tall trees in dense forests or on tree branches sometimes so close to the ocean that the plants are washed by salt spray. In Borneo, plants are found in Sabah on Mt. Kinabalu, and in Kalimantan and Sarawak at undisclosed locations. Plants grow in lower mountain forests from near sea level to about 4900 ft. (1500 m) and seem to grow mostly in regions that experience a distinct but short dry season. in the Philippines, plants are found in the southern islands of Balabac, Bancalan, Lambugan, Palawan and Sulu and Tawitawi in the Sulu Archipelago. In this region, plants are found at elevations up to 1650 ft. (500 m).
