I appreciate your interest. I've had both plants (still do), and was just saying that minimas can often look like that plant did after being in a warehouse store for awhile. I think that it's a problem when people immediately want a definitive identification for an unknown plant that probably wasn't grown in optimal conditions. I would give it a few months.
Yes it can be very tricky to id sometimes as you say when plants can change so dramatically in even slightly different conditions.I can only go on my own experience of OZ plants that are always outside @DonNotDonny
