Does anyone have an idea on the ID for this one. It is just a tiny plant in a thumb pot right now. The edges of the silvery leaves are redder in person than they come out in this picture. The leaves are also bumpy (is there a name for that characteristic?)

This is the underside of the leaves.

It reminds me of Mikado but really couldn't say.

Thank you, it does look like Mikado. The centers on mine appear to be more red than the one pictured in PlantFiles but that could be due to the growing conditions or the light.

It could be a young Mikado but it is too early to tell.

Here is a young one of mine.

That is pretty close but I agree, this is such a little baby we will just have to wait and see.

It also reminds of Mike's Mauve, Her Majesty, or Eeyore.

Here is a link to my own Mike's Mauve. One leaf kind of looks like yours (upper left).

Sigh, they are all so pretty - and so similar. I am going to keep watching to see what happens with mine. I'll post pictures again after it has grown some.
