Default Is this Mysore?

I went to my local nursery today and they had two plants labeled Mysore. They both had about 5 feet of p-stem and were really slender. When I went there last time, there was a plant labeled Mysore that had the red waxy coating under the leaves, but these ones didn't have that. Is it just because they are more mature now? Here are some pictures:

Petioles (they were closed):


Leaves (pink midrib but no waxy coating):




P-stem:


Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks. Can I get a second opinion? The only thing that makes me skeptical is the fact that there's no waxy coating on the undersides of the leaves.

It looks a lot like the mysores I have seen except that the undersides of the leaves are kinda pinkish bronze, but that could be a factor of age and weather.

That's what's making me skeptical. The funny thing is I went to the same nursery a few months ago and there was a plant labeled 'Mysore' that did have pinkish bronze undersides. But now there's two plants there labeled 'Mysore' and neither of them have it.

If you want a true Mysore you'll get in your car right now and get back over there to check for new leaves emerging.

We have plenty of Mysore here in the South Pacific and your pics look just like the Mysore we have around here.
They are very reddish and pink when they are young, one of the prettiest pups I've ever seen.

Should I buy it then? My dad says that this nursery is so high-end and that they have so many knowledgeable people there that they would know if it wasn't it.

One thing I'd like to point out: One of the leaf midribs was almost entirely green on one of the plants.
