In Ladakh, this insectivorous plant is known as
lingna. There, the dried and powdered leaves are
roasted on a flat stone, after which the powder is
mixed with water and put in a bottle, which is then
buried for ten to fifteen days. The Ladakhis enjoy
this drink (lingeatzish) primarily in winter. It is
said to have very inebriating effects and can cause
death if consumed in excess (Navchoo and Buth
1990,320*).
