Hello,a month ago I got leaf cuttings from several mexican butterworts.
One of them was from Pinguicula agnata. The weird thing is that one of the plantlets is completely white....

Also I got summer leaves from these species:
Pinguicula ‘APHRODITA’ (P. agnatha x moctezumae)
Pinguicula ‘WESER’
Pinguicula agnata
Pinguicula agnata x gypsicola
Pinguicula gracilis x moctezumae
Pinguicula gypsicola
Pinguicula gypsicola x moctezumae

And only one didn't produce plants...

Well, if its a mutation and stays white, it will die.

Probably, this plantlet was just underneath a leaf and so was very pale. Pinguicula is turn white or light yellow in the dark.

It wasn't under a leaf. And every other plantlet has normall coloration.... The plantlet next to it has the base of each leaf white and the rest is normally green. The biggest P. agnata plantlet is green. So it seems to be a mutation....

Unfortunately, the lack of chlorophyll will lead to its demise, if it keeps growing that way.

I hope the plantlet next to it will survive. That one has half of the leaf white and half of the leaf green.
Also how is it possible to get these plants from leaf cuttings.... Shouldn't they be the same as the plant from which I got the leaf...

Well, if the plant you took them from is a chimera, then yes you can get two different genetic individual clones from one individual but chimeric plant.
