[censored]alternanthera reineckii mini vs regular[censored]alternanthera reineckii

Hi everyone, I'm curious of the difference between alternanthera reineckii mini and regular alternanthera reineckii. They both have the same color, and mini just grow slower and stay small. But wouldnt light be able to change the lengths of the stem? Like low light could make the mini grow taller? I can't tell the difference of them in picture. Can someone please help me.

I believe it's pretty much the same plant.

I've only had the pleasure of keeping this plant but had no reference to discern whether it were one type or the other. Sorry

My "mini" has grown larger than any of the other regular ones I have (it's older). I'm convinced it's the same plant.
