    This is ref to the locked thread. Track down web archive and found they have updated their website here: http://www.88fish.com/plant.html
    I tried google translate but it seems that will make the images not work.

    I must say most of these names are locally used in Hong Kong or Canton district. Not all Chinese will use these names. (There are 7+ dialects in Chinese, the webmaster speaks Yue)

    Most of the plants I am familiar with, except "small loosely".
