Some kind of weed, like clover but not quite
I can't find it on my app.
It's an Anthurium.
Are you sure? The stem and growth pattern of the leaves seam much more like a pilea peperomioides - it also sprouted pups in the same way a pilea does
I'm quite sure. It doesn't look much like Pilea peperomioides at all to me.
I agree. It's definitely not a Pilea peperomioides.
No no I'm not saying it is one, I'm just saying it could be from a member of that plant species
I mean that the stems and base of the leaves look very similar if you zoom in
Here are examples of Pilea peperomioides. The leaves are peltate (have the petiole attached to the underside of the leaf rather than the edge), and nearly circular, or very slightly oval shaped.
The leaves on this plant (which is an Anthurium) are cordate (heart shaped, petiole attached to the edge of the leaf). They are also much, much larger than what any member of the Pilea genus can hope to achieve.
In the US, the chances of someone having one of these and not knowing is very low, unless the plant is very old and the owner does not use Instagram/ Pinterest/ any other online houseplant community.
Sprouting up pups is not exclusive to P. peperomioides or even plants closely related to it. Strawberries, grasses, cactus, orchids, begonias, and African violets all do this as well, and that's not even an exhaustive list. None of those plants are closely related to Pilea peperomioides.
