I got this tiny little guy at a grocery store, didn't include a label. It was prone to under watering in the grower pot it came in but doing much better now after repotting. It has long, sturdy stalks with shiny green leaves. They grow in with 2 symmetrical leaves mirroring each other, similar to a jade. All the new growth has an oval, pointed shape while older leaves are more round. They don't feel thick or watery, instead they're more thin with a waxy top. Anyone know what this is?

The opposite round leaves are cotyledon, and those lanceolate leaves above them are true leaves, quite popular as house plants in non tropical countries I see. My late professor grow them big as an office plant... he was so proud for the blooms and few berry.... (made me smile as those are just crop plants for me.... while here in tropics we are so excited having a raspberry or blackberry, even-though they rarely set fruit... )
and welcome to the forum.... Welcome!
