Facts & Folkore:

Dracula vampira is endemic to Ecuador in South America being found only on the slopes of Mount Pichincha. It is found between 1900 and 2200 metres above sea level, where it is fairly locally abundant.

As an epiphyte D. vampira does not grow in soil, instead it grows on the lower sections of trees on the forested mountainside; many plants may accumulate on damp, leaf litter.
