Hi Nan,

Your plant is a Peperomia.

There are over 1000 varieties of peperomia plants. All peperomia plants, which belong to the Pepper Family, are semi- succulents with very similar care requirements. The leaves, thick and plump, rippled, smooth, or shiny, can be various shades of green, red, gray, and cream. The pattern on the leaves may be marbled, striped, or a solid color. Indoors, mature peperomia plants never grow taller than 12”-18″ and are ideal for tables.  You can read all my care tips in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.
