I bought these from the local nursery last week because they look like good viv plants. I'm not positive on exact Id's but I have an idea. The first I believe is some sort of fern and the other looks to be a Pepperomia relative. If anyone can give ID's beyond that, I'd appreciate it! Thanks in advance

The first one is a heart fern...They will do great in aviv. I have one that has tripled in size.

The second one kind looks like a Peperomia rotundifolia var.maybe?....I have some that look like that but can't think of the name for the life of me.

Thanks! I didn't realize the name of the fern was so simple. The other looks like your suggestion, but mine has succulent leaves. I can't tell from the pictures I've seen whether Pep. rotundifolia does or not.

Hemionitis arifolia is the scientific name of the heart fern incase you want to search some info.....

I went back and look threw my e-mails and that is what I have P. rotundifolia and they do seem to have succulent leaves. Mine are quite thick and waxy feeling.

Thanks again! I've already began to gather information on the fern, and I'll write down the pepperomia as a probational ID.
