Most of these species are native to South East Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines).

Phalaenopsis are epiphytic or lithophytic plants, that grow attached to the branches and trunks of trees, rocks and mossy banks overhanging waters, and are almost always found in deep shade. The majority of species flourish in the wild where the temperature is naturally uniform, ranging from 24ºC at night to 35ºC during the day.

Taeniophyllum Bl. Small, almost stem-less monopodial epiphytes without any leaves but green roots, flower are borne on short unbranched racemes, So far 160 species have been named which are found from India throughout South East Asia and some Pacific islands. Comber in his book “Orchids Of Java” recorded: Sumatra have 10 species, Java 20 species, Borneo 6 species, New Guinea 84 species. So Indonesia can claim to be the centre of distribution of this genus.
Thrixspermum Bl. Monopodial, mostly epiphytic but a few are terrestrial, with long and short stem and flat leaves. Inflorescences extend gradually with only one or a few flowers open at a time.
