Pests and diseases
Utricularia calycifida is frequently grown by carnivorous plant specialists. Because of its large leaves and variations in flower color and size, several cultivars of this species have been established, e.g. Utricularia 'Lavinia Whateley', U. 'Cthulhu', U. 'Yog-Sothoth', U. 'Mrs. Marsh,' and U. 'Asenath Waite.' These names are based upon characters in the novels and short stories of H. P. Lovecraft.
