I have the interest, but the knowledge about their culture came a  
little late for my R. decora seedlings from Alan's seeds... Wish some  
would become available again.

Dylan, as for the wild origin material, you should get in touch with  
Dan, the "plantguy" of Treasured Botanicals. He is offering some  
bulbs of R. multiflora from Peru, and says his source in Peru has 2  
or maybe more Rauhia species that came from 3 different localities. I  
invited him to join the list, but don't know if he has done so or not.
