Does anyone here know what the name of this plant is?
This picture is of rooted cuttings taken from the mother I also have.
When the stems grow to about 8"-9" tall, they will start to flop over the rim, much like a wandering jew. I seem to remember the name started with an E, but I'm not positve

Thank you!

Hi Susan!

That looks a lot like a pepperomia to me. I have a similar looking plant, but it's all green. The leaves and stems look the same though.

Have I asked you where upstate you are? I'm down in Rockland County, on the border of Bergen County in NJ.

But I like it .

Thanks for the replies!

Lynne, that's it! I did some searching of peperomias and it's a "Peperomia scandens" Mystery solved! Thanks!
I live about two hours south of Syracuse, an hour east of Corning NY and VERY COLD as you well know!

The mature leaves on this plant are 1 to 1 1/2"

The variegated pattern of these leaves would sure make a nice large leafed philodendron though...

[Wink] Thanks again,
