Can’t identify my plant


Someone gave me this plant and I just love it but I have no idea what it is and thus, can not find any tips on proper care. Can you help?

Hi Sara,

Your plant is a round-leafed Peperomia (Peperomia rotundifolia). All peperomia plants, which belong to the Pepper Family, are semi-succulent plants that like bright indirect light and dry soil. It’s best to water from the bottom to prevent root rot from over watering.

You  can read all my care tips in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. The picture is of a slightly different variety, but the care is the same.
