Hi Gang,

I posted a note on another Bulb forum about Crinum razafindratsiraea.  
Mostly, I'm curious to know where this plant comes from and what sort of habitat 
(desert, savanna, seasonally wet, etc.).   I have found one publication that 
refers to Crinum razafindratsiri, perhaps this is a misspelling or a spelling 

I got one reply that the I might want is in Herbertia, volume 55, pages 
130-133.  If any of you have read that article (from about 2000), I'd enjoy hearing 
a bit more about the species.  

As near as I can tell, it comes from Madagascar and is a not-too-distant 
relative of C. mauritianum.  So, I'm guessing it likes seasonally wet conditions 
and dry winters, or perhaps wet conditions all year.   

Thanks for any information you can provide.
