Yes Pilea microphylla. I had one not long ago. It gets many tiny red flowers all over it. Also called an Artillery plant lol

Many thanks for the response! I had it for more than two years now, but it never has any flowers. Regards, Johann

If it flowers you'll be able to hear them bursting open. They make a popping sound, and when many do it together it's fascinating to hear :o)
