    Here is a photographic example of what I am talking about:

    Before - plant as grown under my conditions:


    Later - the same plant after 2 weeks in a bright, not direct sun, window:


    You may notice that initially the plant was in bloom. However, after getting a severely reduced input of light, the plant has split its crown and is blooming much more profusely. Seems to me like a response to less than optimal growing conditions as a survival mechanism.

    Some of healthiest agnata x gypsicola plants I have seen, were grown by Leo Song: Photo from Larry's Website
    These plants were in a rather dark corner with very little direct sun, if any at all. There was some flourescent tubes situated 3 or 4ft above the plants, but I doubt these provided much light. Some of these plants were up to 3in in diameter in their winter rosette(notice the numerous dry summer leaves). I can only imagine their size during the summer. Most of the plants were growing on the side of the pot, some as epiphytes!
    The most impressive display of Pinguicula in flower has be from Oliver Gluch's collectionOliver Gluch's collection from A World of Pinguicula
    Most of the plants seem to have very green leaves, even some of the laueana plants.

    One of the P. "John Rizzi" plants that I have has some new leaves struggling to grow. The new leaves that are growing on the biggest plant is starting to brown and shrivel up. It's had great humidity and great sunlight. It may still be recovering from shipping stress but it seemed to be doing well until now. Any ideas on what might be happening?

    starman, i grew all my mexican pings in a terrarium with humidity over 80% and they grew my leaps and bounds. now i've put them outside untill things get too cold for them just because i can. this proves that mexican pings can and will grow perfectly fine in high humidity.
