Full Description: Cactus species Rauhocereus riosaniensis Rauhocereus is a genus with a single species Rauhocereus riosaniensis which grows columnar in form as a shruby or columnar clumping form over time. It is found exclusively in Northern Peru in the wild where the genus Browningia is also found. Some have thought Rauhocereus should be included in the Browningia genus, but the majority feel it is unique enough to warrant its own genus.

The stems of Rauhocereus riosaniensis are somewhat tuberculate, with a rather geometric appearance, which can be rather striking to the eye when pronounced. Flowers are nocturnal and white, floral tubes with scales and hairs. Like so many of the columnar very rare cactus species, Rauhocereus is not widely grown by hobbyists or collectors, but can usually be found at Botanical gardens that have significant cactus collections.

Common names : None known very rare cacti

Synonyms : Browningia riosaniensis

Native to : Peru

Notes : Rauhocereus riosaniensis was named after botanist Werner Rauh, a professor with many specific contributions to the study of various succulent plants.
