This has been found in both Thailand and Kalimantan on Borneo Island. It is thought not to do well submersed but little is known. Perhaps it is a species that will never grow submersed or perhaps there are conditions under which it will grow. Karen Randall found the plant in Thailand in 2004 but was unable to grow it submersed. It was discovered again in Borneo in 2011 by Abdul Sahal.
