Hanging Plant ID

suzy713August 29, 2010

I am presenting my photos to the masters at GardenWeb, in the hopes someone can help me ID this plant. It was purchased at Home Depot for about 15 dollars. It has thick fleshy leaves and stems, which are rigid and break somewhat easily. It is about 3 feet across from left to right, and weighs about 30lbs. Can anyone identify this "Mystery Beast" of a plant? Many Thanks-

Well, I'm no Master, but it's some kind of Peperomia, those long, rat tail-like things are its blooms, characteristic of this kind of plant.

I believe it's Peperomia obtusifolia & it looks VERY happy & healthy, good work!

For anyone wondering why I posted the same thing after Rhizo, well I'd actually answered this afternoon around 3 pm but apparently left home w/ it still at preview & only discovered it on return hours later.

lololol! I've done the same thing, too! So funny. You were REALLY just copycatting me, weren't you?
