    Since first discovering Mexican Pinguicula sometime long ago, I have always greatly enjoyed this little gem:

    Only one plant was planted per pot. Some have developed a "crestate" growth pattern (I suspect spider mite influence). I've discovered I can inspire bloom simply by temporarily withholding strong light.

    The crestate appearance is very interesting! You mentioned spider mites? Do you think these are still infected with mites, or this is a result of it?
    My esseriana's don't color up like yours, i guess they could if given more light.

    Here is a shot of what I call (Large Clone), I received my start of this from Joe Griffin:


    This is a community tray of the same large clone -- these have begun to bloom while the largest are just 2cm in diameter. This is to demonstrate that small changes in growing conditions can have enormous effects on the appearance of these plants.

    Peter,
    I believe the spider mites are no longer in residence, but their initial attack stimulated this growth pattern.

    I use cool-white fluorescent lights, presently on a 12 hour photoperiod.

    Here are some close-ups of the crestate plants:
