Today I bought a tropical plant at a store, but I do not know the name of this plant. Can you give me the name and some care guidance related to this plant?

  • not a peperomia or a pothos. Are the leaves hairy? Is the stem waxy and round or does is have a groove in it? – kevinsky Jul 10 '17 at 8:18
  • The leaves are not hairy, the stem below has 2 single stalks that has new emerging leaves, but is not rounded like a ball. – LowyChan Jul 10 '17 at 10:09
  • Perhaps a young hoya? – michelle Jul 10 '17 at 14:15
  • @kevinsky Are you sure it's not a young peperomia? – J. Musser Sep 1 '17 at 17:03
  • @JMusser, peperomia stalks are circular with a waxy finish and the stem has prominent raised ring where each segment joins. Some peperomia have slender red stalks but none of them what I think I see in the photo: a groove in the leaf stalk – kevinsky Sep 2 '17 at 1:44
