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: Northern Colombia and Panama. Plants grow on trees or as semiterrestrials on the surface of the ground in low-elevation forests. Escobar (1991) reports that plants are found at 3300-5900 ft. (1000-1800 m). They were first collected in Colombia in the Department of Antioquia and have since been found in a variety of other locations. In Panama, they have been found along the Río Trinidad and near Lake Gatún. Habitat location and elevation are not available for the Colombia collection sites, but early writings reported that these fairly rare plants were native to the temperate forests of Antioquia. Always uncommon, this species is now reported to be very scarce in its natural habitat. Actual habitat elevation is not known for certain, so the following temperatures should be used somewhat cautiously.
