Hi Richard,
We have U.striatula growing here in HK. It is quite a rare utric and does
only grow in specific conditions. Indeed it most of the time grows as a
lithophyte in shaded streams. Sometimes it can also be found growing on
moss, but only if there is running water. In a way it like quite similar
habitats to that of the european rupicolous pings. Ah, and I forgot to
mention that this is, as its relatives I believe, a perfect annual (you
often see the seed at the beginning of a stem).
I have tried many time to grow some cuttings but have failed to provide good
growing conditions (I think they like it quite cool which is hard to provide
in HK in summer time...).
Hope this helps.
