I had the opportunity to compare X 'Aphrodite' (P. agnata x P. moctezumae) with the in house creation of P. moctezumae x P agnata by Curious Plant reversing the pod parent order used to create Aphrodite. Below is a picture of both of these plants side by side. Note that the flower of moctezumae x agnata is different (more red in it) than Aphrodite. Also Aphrodite leaves have colored up more than moctezumae x agnata. Both plants have been blooming for me all summer, each having about two flowers active at the same time. Leaves of Aphrodite are clearly more upright while leaves of moctezumae x agnata are hoizontal. Plants are in the same media (as close as possible, afs with a tiny amount of peat) and same conditions. To better track the differences, I have moved the plants so that they are growing side by side. Note that the moctezumae x agnata looks like it could be in winter form, so pictures are not necessary completely accurate. I think I need to grow them side by side for another year to confirm these differences.
Sorry about the picture quality. It's from my phone and unedited.
