This one is from the local swap; could it be a Hoya?

I think it's a Peperomia although I've never seen one with red stems. I like it though.

Thank You! Janet Super Sleuth!!! You really know your stuff. Hurray!

This plant arrived after the local swap had ended. Eric and I were cleaning up and re-organizing the orphaned plants when an elderly couple arrived with a truckload of plants. This one looked as if it had been given a severe 'haircut' but I saw it as a good candidate for propagation. My hope is to make lots of little plants from this one to share at a future swap. Thank you for the name. Thumbs up

Gee folks, if anyone spent the hours I have learning how to recognise not only bugs but also plants, anyone could do it. Rolling on the floor laughing

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Well, since you put it that way I guess even brain surgery would be easy. Rolling on the floor laughing Thumbs up

I'll add the pics to the database and get started propagating to see how many new plants can be created. Wish me luck. Crossing Fingers!

I finally got around to separating the Peperomia glabella... created 108 new plants. Hurray!
So far they all look good. I hid the flats under the travel trailer so they did not suffer any damage during hurricane Matthew. (I'll add a photo as soon as I am able.)

There are so many different Peperomia's and I'm loving @greene's with those bright red stems! I also love @purpleinopp/Tiffany's with those neat blooms but these two plants don't look alike at all to my old eyes. One plant looks to have an upright habit while the other appears to have a trailing habit.
