Habitat

Species occurrence increases significantly where rainfall is higher than 1500 mm/ yr (Chi2 test) to reach an optimum around 2700 mm/yr (logistic regression analysis). It is often found close to rivers (Chi2 test), in moist and very shady places (e.g. under the tree canopy along streams, riverbanks, waterfalls, and swampy areas). Occasionally also along roads or paths but often under shade (herbarium). It flowers mainly near clearings (Beentje 1978). Soils can be lateritic, clay-sandy, or sandy (herbarium), often with a high water holding capacity (Chi2 test).
