Cultivated Peperomia plants seen in Kenya in the first week of July, 2016.
…, Could these be Peperomia clusiifolia too?

Baby Rubber Plant, Blunt Leaf Peperomia
Peperomia obtusifolia

Thanks … I can see the leaves having a Red edge in my pictures.
That’s the reason I suggested the above id.

…, in this case, leaves are obtuse. Kind see the leaf tip.
This is useful link to ornamental Peperomia.

Thanks for clearing my doubts.
Also thanks for the link.

A cultivated plant seen in the garden during my visit in Jan this year.
Looks close to variegated variety of Baby Sun Roses
Mesembryanthemum cordifolium to me 

Peperomia species. Ornamental.

Peperomia obtusifolia ‘Variegata’?

Here are the images.

I guess ID looks close!


Peperomia obtusifolia (L.) A.Dietr.: 3 .heic images

Location: Thankot, Kathmandu, Nepal
Altitude:  1600 m.
Date: 19 July 2022
Habit : Cultivated

Yes, …, Just two days back I have seen this live.

Why .heic images?
They create problem in downloading?

May be due to mobile shot as my camera betrayed.

Simplest way to convert Heic files to JPG, open in Paint and save as JPG.
In Windows although thumbnails of Heic Files are seen, once you click them, they simply get downloaded without opening in Windows.

Beautiful indoor plant. I had grown it earlier but died during winters.

This is a common garden pant here.
