Im still not sure what type of plant this is, but does anyone know what those pairs of buds are? I dont think they are new leaves and they never really do anything. Please advise.
Thinking possibly a Peperomia obtusifolia.
The nubs are likely backbudding as a result of it being cut back(looks like a while ago).
How long have the nubs been there?
They've always been there. Heres another photo.
Seeing the second pic gives me pause...I'm gonna see what someone else has to venture in the way of a guess.
That pic makes me think of a ficus elastica but the new growth is all wrong.
Yep...definitely calls for a second opinion. :)
Definatly a ficus but I don't know which one.
If it is a ficus,the new growth should come to a point,whereas the new growth in the pic makes me think of P.obtusifolia.
The nubs are rounded aren't they(kinda hard to tell in the pic)?
I don't believe that last pic is representative of Pep Obt's growth, doesn't get such woody stems.
Could we have a pic of the entire plant pls. (top to bottom)? It would help us on this ID.
Good point Karen!
Thinks it's a ficus elastica decora?
At this rate I'm leaning that way. :)
The dreaded double post got me again! LOL

I think its a mistletoe fig. New growth does come to a point, i just pinched those in an attempt to make this back bud. Those nubs are actually the fig fruit buds i believe.
Ficus deltoidea. YES fandog! I do believe that's it!
Nice work! :)
I'm not convinced of that til I see the whole plant (tho' the suggested Ficus is one of my absolute favorites).
I had one myself(which shames me that I didn't think of it sooner)like a million years ago. Pretty sure I got it in a trade.
It would be nice to have one again but all things come to those who wait,right? :)
Any ideas on how to get it to back bud? Ive pinched the tips and removed some of the fruit buds.
Tip pinching always did it for me. :)
