This plant started as a tiny little teacup sized flowering plant that I got for my girlfriend on Valentine's day this year. After it showed a silly amount of resilience, I moved it to a bigger pot and let it grow.

I'd love to know what kind of plant (probably a weed) I have here *Blush*

Wow, you guys are amazing! Thank you so much, that is most definitely what it is. It had those delicate little flowers on top when we got it.

Thank You!

Happy to try to help your investigation. Smiling

If it gets enough light over the next 3-4 months, it should bloom again. I usually see the flower buds starting to form in December, might take a bit longer farther north.

It really exploded when I moved it from a window that got morning light to a window that got full sun most of the day. I'm eager to see it bloom again after assuming, by the rapid growth, that it was probably a weed :blushing:

You guys definitely saved it, I researched proper care after finding out what it was and it would have really suffered out on my porch as the weather turned.
