Hello everyone!
I bought this plant a week ago but it doesn't have a name. It says in the card that it's an indoor plant but I have no clue how to water it or any light requirements with this plant.
It's got dark green glossy leaves and purple-ish stems.

I'm not sure but it reminds me of Peperomia
We have quite a few listed in our database with photos: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

Hi & welcome! With the pairs of opposite leaves, I'm thinking in a different direction. Maybe Nematanthus: Nematanthus

@purpleinopp Good eye Tiffany, it really does look a lot like Nematanthus!

Thank you everyone!
This just made my day!
We call this plant here Goldfish Plant and it's very rare. Florist and nurseries usually puts the price up especially when the plant is flowering.
Thank you again!
