I think this is jean pierre crouteau...Ive had it since the 90's and seems like it doesnt have as many fantasy spots as it used to..any way to encourage more spots when it blooms?

I think I read that the fantasy are unstable which means they change, I don't remember reading anything about how to get one to fantasy more, it's their make up and once that changes, you can't do much about it.

I hope someone has a better answer. tish

You might try growing it cooler, on the bottom shelf.

Misting might also help. A change of humidity could add deeper color to some plants. Maybe it will make spots on these--and maybe you won't want water spots on your flowers!
