I'm not sure whether I can ask this question here or not. For, I am attaching an image to be identified and it's not easily searchable. I bought this lovely plant yesterday, but I don't know its name and how to maintain it.

This plant is Peperomia obtusifolia, a native of Florida and Central America. You can identify it by the thick, fleshy stems and leaves which have a glossy wax finish. Flowers are insignificant but this if more than made up for by it's adaptability to being grown indoors or as an outside ground cover in tropical areas. Does your plant have drainage at the bottom of the pot? You can always pot it up and put the pot inside the decorative pot.
Although I agree that this looks like Peperomia obtusifolia (and may actually be that), as kevinsky suggested, I think it's equally likely that it's a young rubber plant (Ficus elastica), by its appearance. Whatever the case, you should eventually find out by how large it gets. Rubber Plants get pretty large (and so do their leaves). They also have white latex in their leaves and stems. I don't know if Peperomia obtusifolia contains latex (but coincidentally, it is also known as a Baby Rubber Plant, notwithstanding it's not even in the same genus, let alone order).
Indirect light, water once a week. Mine is going on 2 years!
