    Which part of HK did you see the Utrics? Mainland or island?

    This is so funny! I checked sundewrex's link and the Chinese name for Utricularia uliginosa translates into 'Wetland Ear-digging Herb' [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
    How does one clear ear wax with a Utric? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I think the translation would be "earpick", named so because of the shape of the flower.

    Ah yes! Earpick would be a more elegant word for that instrument! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    most of them grow on Lantau island of Hong Kong,they are distributed in different locations,some Utrics like wet and full-sunlight,some does not...
    U. caerulea is the one grows in dry sand with bright sunlight,but U. striatula grows on the cliff with slow running water.
    they are very difficult to flower in in-door,so i always go out to see them in the wild.

    I grow U. caerulea ... and as far as I know it is correctly identified. It came from a very reputable source..
