Maybe it'll get redder/purple or the lid has more/less color variation, lid goes up a little more. Unfortunately, with cephs, a lot of times you need to grow them a certain way in order to bring out the characteristics that make them different. Like Eden Black. Hummer's Giant will get larger in lower light, etc. Sometimes it'll be some branding to get more money like "Charles Brewer's clone" when the guy probably had 1000 different plants.
If you're looking for a cephalotus, I'd go with listed cultivars if you want a little different.
I ended up asking CC themselves and all they said was it doesnt have a particular distinguishing feature from other cephs but it is genetically different because its from The Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Which kinda doesnt make sense? Arent seed grown cephs, genetically different from eachother (as that is how plants get genetic diversity)? So unless they mean the "ABG Clone" is genetically different from the cephs CC sells from their own collection, isnt the "ABG Clone" just a clone of a seed grown ceph that ABG had? Why Clone it? It seems like its just a branding case, which isnt a bad thing in this case because it was the same price as their regular cephs.
I did some digging and I found a reddit post of someone who also had an ABG Clone, and it does seem like there might actually be a visual difference in how the pitchers look. The picture the person posted of it showed significantly larger pitchers than the typical they had growing next to it, and it seemed to be a lighter color. I can post the picture if you guys want to see.
