SOLVED: Houseplant is 37 years old...can't remember what it is!

Lake Oswego, OR

This plant is evergreen, with thickish leaves around 1/2" to 1".
It has non descript longish non flowering seed spikes once a year.
It was given to me in college in a coffee mug!

Yes! Maybe Peperomia vinasiana?

Ok, now does anyone know if I was just lucky it lived so long, or is the species just hardy?

I have a similar plant, not the same species, but it is a tough plant. Plus, it loves you, I'm sure.

Thanks Sally, I like Peperomia. There are a lot of Hawaiian species that are absolutely beautiful.

Peperomia vinasiana could be right. Need to see the flower spikes, leaves top & bottom, and stems close-up to be sure.

Metro that is definitely what it is...thank you!
And of course it loves me Sally....that's why it has lived through eight birds, four dogs, three bunnies, two teenagers, and one husband lol :)
