Help identifying plant

KristyListyJune 29, 2013

Just purchased this tiny little guy but there was no name on it and I'm just trying to figure out how to care for it. I've done a ton of google searching but can't quite pinpoint it. It looks kind of Begonia-esque but haven't seen any that match it 100%. I'm a real amateur plant owner. Just have some houseplants that are mostly succulents and then typical spider and philodendron. So if this is a common plant, my apologies, my googling abilities have failed me!

A Peperomia I'd say. Since I can read the label... Holtzcamp Greenhouse doesn't list their foliage plants specifically but there's a pic of "assorted foliage" with your plant here.

Ooo, the bronzy P. caperata, how nice.

I had one of these in college, the green one, didn't know how to grow it well but loved the texture. Yours is really nice, enjoy.

When I had these last,they did their best in a terrarium(for me anyway). They are WAY easy to propagate in such an environment too. :)
