Also known as the Peperomia Obtusifolia, it is actually unrelated to the Hevea Brasiliensis, the primary resource of natural rubber. The Baby Rubber Plant is characterized by its thick upright stems with glossy, oversized leaves. It stores water in its thick leaves, which shrivel in drought and plump when water is available. Leaves are typically dark green, but can also have¬†white or yellow variegation¬†that resembles marbling.
