Please ID this medicinal herb. Photo was taken in a herbal garden in Oct 2012.

Looks like a Peparomia species (Any P. blanda var. ?)

Peperomia sp

It is Peperomia dindygulensis Miq. as per details herein.

Peperomia leptostachys

Thanks, … There has been a lot of confusion between Peperomia dindygulensis Miq.Peperomia leptostachya Hook. & Arn.and Peperomia blanda (Jacquin) Kunth., in the past.
Pl. see the references at Peperomia dindygulensis Miq.
This is Peperomia dindygulensis Miq. as per POWO  Flora of Karnataka (Peperomia dindygulensis Miq.) Flora of peninsular India  (Peperomia dindygulensis Miq.)

According to the India biodiversity both are same. Peperomia dindigulensis is synonym of P.leptostachya.

Thanks, … It is not correct.
Peperomia dindygulensis Miq.Peperomia leptostachya Hook. & Arn. and Peperomia blanda (Jacquin) Kunth. are different species now.

Images of Peperomia blanda in FOI should be of Peperomia dindygulensis Miq. as references and details herein and as per POWO.
Pl. correct.

Nice return to Dindigul after a trip to Jamaica (Peperomia blanda is native to Jamaica)!

I have sent the specimen with the name Peperomia dindygulensis.

Yes, that time Peperomia dindygulensis was believed to be synonym of Peperomia blanda.

Pl. check

Yes Its Peperomia …, Check with Peperomia tetraphylla

It leaves are not whorled, so it is more closely to Peperomia emarginatifolia J.Mathew, thank you very much for ID my plant,

I guess you are right

You may be right, …, though I am not sure. I have requested the author for validation, in case any response is received.

You being the author, may I request you for validation as Peperomia emarginatifolia or otherwise pl.

I guess ID is correct !

I think, not emarginatifolia. Might be fall in portulacoides or dindygulensis
Or another one. Stem character is curious

I will keep it as Peperomia dindygulensis Miq., for the time being, based on POWO and FoPI specimens compared to those of Peperomia portulacoides (Lam.) A.Dietr. as per POWO and FoPI.

Ok dear …, thank you very much for ID my plant,
