[Aroid-l] watertrumpet

The aquatic genus Cryptocoryne has a nickname in English as "watertrumpet".
At the 2006 meeting of the European Cryptocoryne Society in Switserland,
Niels Jacobsen (Copenhagen, DK) demonstrated that you actually can play on
it. Very funny to see (and hear) the movie at:

A question is from where the name "watertrumpet" originates. Is it the
typical tube and limb of a Cryptocoryne which resembles more or less a
trumpet or is there an indigenous root for this name? Anybody knows?

Enjoy it,

Jan Bastmeijer
