    I bought 2 Japanese Princesses and 1 Mayday at a nursery a few months ago.

    My large 2gallon Japanese Princess is starting to look like a Mayday?

    And my smaller sizes both look like Japanese Princess, one was supposed to be a small Mayday.

    I have a small Mystic Mikawa but that looks like it was labeled correctly.

    Good morning Connor , first of all 'so so jealous'. Can't get them over this side of the pond.
    Secondly, identification with these Mikawa's I feel is very difficult in their early days of leafing out. And tbh I have seen a few mature ones at Mr Maple online and they are so very close to each other in leaf. But mistakes do happen at the best of nurseries and so I would allow a little bit longer for ID.
