Help identifying plant

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.

RE: Help identifying plant

Peperomia caperata. :)

*edit = misspelling,..thanks Karen! :)

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. :)
