Relatively new to pings. Picked up two last September (a Pinguicula 'Sethos' and a Pinguicula Ehlersiae). The Sethos appears to be acting 'odd'. Started off as one set of leaves, then noticed two in the same "ball". Two started flowering, now when I count them it's at eight.

What's going on? Do I have 8 separate plants here, or is it one that's just growing weird?

It probably just divided. You can separate them (carefully) or leave them be.

I count at least 7 crowns there. If you don't have space for a bunch of extra pots you can leave it be. If you have the room, you can separate them.

Yeah - I'd wait. If you try too early, before the plants basically start pushing themselves apart, you will end up with a LOT of inadvertent leaf pullings. Once they are further along in their division it is a cinch to tease them apart. Enjoy your abundance of 'Sethos'!
