I thought it could be a string of pearls, but it’s not.

    Appreciate for the feedback Lindsay! With the plant in person, you would be the best judge. i could be wrong since I’m only speculating from the given photo. According to the link below, the Pilea species called “Pilea glauca” this is a name “that was never been published according to proper botanical procedures”. And to add to the confusion it is called by numerous names as the link below had stated. If yours is a species of the Pilea genus, but of which species(?). Also when it blooms the flowers will confirm whether it is of the Pilea genus. When I was searching for Pilea depressa, it yielded that P. depressa has some other cultivars e.g. “Sao Paulo”, “Ellen”etc… But I was not able to find more proper information about these and can’t go further than just the species itself. Check out the included link below for further information. Best wishes Lindsay!

    The leaves details are not close enough to be certain. I’m wondering if your plant is Pilea depressa (?). Because it shares several common names with other plants species under different genera, to avoid the confusion, best to use its scientific name when searching for information. Check out the included link and see if the leaves look the same of yours. Click on images to enlarge. If it isn’t Pilea depressa, make new post with closeup photo of the leaves. Best wishes!
