    I brought this little cutting the other day as it is just right to fill a small gap in the front of one of my plants groups.

    It wasn't labeled and I can't seem to find a picture of it any of my books so I am stumped as to what it is, if anyone could id it for me I would be grateful

    Cheers

    SS that's exactly what first came to my mind, but I don't think it is. This one has a somewhat palm-like presentation with 4 leaves per node, different from V. davidii's typical two leaves per node. This one also looks like the single leaf node is terminal, and doesn't keep climbing like the more horizontal V. davidii. Also the leaves are a little too thick & smooth.
    If that is a terminal node on top each one, then it might suggest a bulb-type plant? Jakk are you 100% sure these were cuttings and not bulbs?

    It's Peperomia verticillata. About 90% certain.

    . . . And so I'm 90% wrong. I agree that it's P. pereskiifolia.
