    Thank you for the follow up photos, these closeup of the plant are very good, I’m able to see the leaves margin/edge are crenate (with round teeth). Although I’m not an expert of the genus, in my humble opinion I’m still leaning toward Pilea depressa. The flowers will confirm if they are of the Pilea genus. Click on the second photo the included link to enlarge, in this image the leaves margin of the “P. glauca red stem” are smooth. But again according to sources the name Pilea glauca/ Pilea glaucophylla are unresolved. Plants in the nursery trade are often sold under incorrect ID.
