Love it ! but have never seen it before. I doubt the flowers will be anything showy.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)

I agree about the flowers. It looks vaguely like a Peperomia but not one I'm familiar with. If that's the case the flowers are weird but not "pretty".

Hi brachareis, Welcome!

Your lovely plant looks like Ornamental Pepper (Piper ornatum)

LOL, well, they are related, they're both in the Piperaceae family of plants. Green Grin!
