    Aphrodite vs. moctezumae x gigantea

    They look so similar what are the noticeable differences between the cultivar Aphrodite and moctezumae x gigantea? Or perhaps not so noticeable differences?

    One big difference is that they're two completely different hybrids; 'Aphrodite' is agnata x moctezumae, not moctezumae x gigantea. Coloration is probably going to be different (I can't imagine the gigantea hybrid getting much beyond a light red tinge, while the cultivar gets really purple), flowers will look different, etc. Leaf shape in a general manner is in fact really the only similarity.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
