i wanted to post some pics of this house plant that was given to me, but now i cant find where to post pics... i was given a plant from someone who let it almost fully die, and they didnt know what it was.. ive been nursing it back to health... it has white and green leaves with red/pink edges on most, they are darker edges on the younder leaves, the body of the plant is sort of cream/pink colored and the whole plant feels almost like its made out of some sort of plastic/rubber type of material, and the leaves arent as thin as normal leaves on a normal plant. ill try and post pics.

Hi Amber,

We meet again, it sounds to me like you may be describing a Hoya. Some of which I grow & collect. Kind of thick leafed, a bit rubbery, some of those pinkish leaves whiten as they age.

Once you learn how to post pix you'll likely find out. To post pix, one needs to use a photohosting site (like Photobucket or Flicker, both of which are free (yippee)) where one uploads one's photos & then from there, copies & pastes some of the computer codes over to here.

For more detailed info. search GW for 'how to post pix' or something like that. In the meantime, open a photohosting account & you can get started. I use Photobucket & it's just fine.

That looks like Peperomia obtusifolia 'Rainbow' (also known as Peperomia magnoliifolia 'Rainbow') to me.

*Ahem* I am correcting myself, some of these looks similar to me, I believe that is Peperomia clusiifolia. I hope I haven't created some confusion.
