Help identify mystery Peperomia?!

Posted by tinygardenNYC none (My Page) on

I saw this lovely Peperomia in a Home Depot, but didn't buy it when I had the chance. Unfortunately it wasn't labeled. The most popular answers from google are Peperomia "Pixie" (I don't think this was right) and P. orba variegata ("Princess Astrid"?), but the squiggly veins on the light leaves don't look like most of the pictures of variegated orbas I've seen. Any ideas?

Thanks, Thedecoguy, much obliged! I had seen that post, and it's definitely the same plant, but that person isn't sure they have it id'ed correctly either and it doesn't look like any of the pictures of variegated orbas I've seen from vendors and elsewhere. They tend to have more of a lemon-lime color scheme with big splotches of variegation. It's those squiggly little veins that set it apart!
