caladium miss muffet green blotches

I just got my miss muffets. one has a normal variegation with very few small green blotches, the 2nd one has lots of green blotches - I haven't seen muffets like this before. I googled images - don't see any either. it does not look like greening from too little light. could it be too much nitrogen in feed? or is it some kind of sport?

How much nitrogen are you giving it?

I just bought it. it's fresh from the nursery. so my q is - could this be a mutation? there were only 2 pots with this variegation out of a dozen. in the same pot the one on the left only got a few small 1/4" green blotches here 'n there. on the marbled one the green is very prominent.

That's no uncommon. More likely as a potted plant than in the ground

but what causes is? some kind of nutrient imbalance in potted plant? just curious if i can make the 2nd one look like that. it only has a few dark green spots about a nickel size. i really like the marbling effect. my previous miss muffets did not have it.
