Dear All, Rob Hamilton forwarded this info on Rauhia which was originally sent to the IBS list by Alan Meerow. "I'm pretty sure that I posted pics of Rauhia on the IBS gallery. All Rauhias have green flowers. 2 spp. look like green Phaedranassas, one (R. decora) like a green Eucrosia but without staminal cup or nectar glands at the base of the stamens. They come from seasonally dry inter-Andean valleys along the Maranon and Utcubamba drainages at intermediate elevations. Dry them off in winter; they usually spontaneously begin active growth in spring. Gritty mix is good." And Alberto Castillo passed on this info. "As for the Rauhia it comes from a tropical part of Peru and probably needs hot conditions even during their dry winter dormancy."
