This is my first houseplant. I received it as a gift but I have no idea what it is, how to take care of it, or why some of the leaves are turning pink. I need to keep it alive for at least a year, until the giver returns to visit! Please help!
Your plant is a succulent plantLearn how to grow and care for succulent plants at Houseplant411.com but I can’t tell from the picture whether it is a Hoya Rubia or a Peperomia acuminata. If I had a close-up of the leaves I could be more certain. The first picture below is a Hoya Rubia, the second a Peperomia. As you can see they are very similar. What do you think? I’m tending toward the Peperomia.
The good news is that the care for both of them is just about the same.
