Hi All: I purchased a Rauhia multiflora during the 2000 IBS meeting in Chicago and have been growing it on my west facing window in my office ever since. The bulb has increased in size and now produces 2 leaves (versus a single leaf when I obtained it). The bulb has also pointed out that I planted it too high by gradually pulling itself down in the potting mix. To say it pulled itself down is a poor attempt to describe the relocation of the bulb storage tissues downwards over a couple of years. The window is older, not well insulated and the cold air cascades past the pot and over the window sill. Outdoor temps in the negative F range and office temps overnight probably around upper 30's or lower 40's. Both leaves developed water soaked tissue along the mid-vein and went soft. I stopped watering and they eventually dried up. The plant had been in the same 4.5" pot since 2000 so I decided it was time to transplant and provide for new soil. 2 parts sand to 1 part coarse bark mulch. Most roots were rotted; the 4 roots that remained fleshy showed signs of browning at the tips. Should I drench the new soil with a fungicide drench? Should I with-hold water until new growth begins? Should I water immediately so the remaining roots don't desiccate?

Second week of high temperatures hovering around 0 degrees F. Night time temperatures have been brutal, close to minus 20 F was the coldest. Anticipate damage on woody plants due to an unusually warm weather (6 weeks) in late December through much of January. A number of geophytes also were encouraged to begin growth too early but hopefully the inch of snow we have on the ground will provide enough insulation to keep the foliage from being disfigured.
