There are a few other differences as well.

The top photo is of a seed grown plant (Lobivia 'Easter Bonnet' x L. 'Easter Bonnet') which is a cross of two Easter bonnets that Lynn-Marie did. (We usually propagate by offsets rather than seed since seed from hybrids isn't always consistent or stable.) The result is as you see it. Easter Bonnet is always a bit variable in color and the two toned color may also vary. The spines are finer on the hybrid. Interesting.
