I have just gotten this plant about 2 weeks ago. It doesn't require much. It is slow growing, and is turning out real well for me.

I have just posted a photo, which I shot in Vietnam recently and which appears to put the kibosh to "Water regularly; do not overwater" in your 'Other Details' section. This Peperomia Clusiifolia is grown entirely in water without any soil. I intent to take advantage of this 'tolerance for wet feet' and plant one in a floating pot in a small pond inside my gazebo, as soon as it get warm enough here in H-Zone 6

Undemanding slow growing plant with succulent leaves, just do not get it waterlogged. Similar to Peperomia obtusifolia but leaves are larger and more elongated.
Seen often in garden centers but rarely with a name attached to it.
