Peperomia obtusifolia 'Red Edge'

Peperomia are fantastic plants to explore, especially if you have pets with appetites.

Sometimes called the baby rubber plant, the thick fleshy leaves do resemble the larger rubber plant (although they are not related). This variety has an attractive red edge adding that extra level of interest. 
The pet friendly nature of Peperomia and their tolerance of lower light conditions, thanks to a life on the forest floor on nature, mean they have been popular houseplants since the 1930s.

A space near a window with a wide view of the sky would make this plant happy.
