I am trying to locate some plants of Utricularia minor to grow out for
chemical analysis.

This species is reportedly used in Ladakh as an intoxicant but is said
to be very toxic and to have caused some deaths.

If anyone on the list can supply a plant of this species or refer me to
a commercial source, please let me know. I would of course pay for any
shipping costs envolved.

All the best,
