Cheiroglossa palmata is most often found growing as an epiphyte in humus that collects in the canopy.  Populations are usually small, but it was particularly abundant in Parque Nacional Las Orquideas. At one site I found over 30 plants before I got distracted by some other fern in need of collection.
