What is this plant?! I bought it earlier this year from Homebase and it had no identification label. At the time, it only had the attractive dark green leaves;now, it has these two different kinds of "stalks" growing in abundance- see photo!

It's called Peperomia caperata :o)
The white 'stalks' are the flowers ...

Thanks for that, Hywel! Now I can give up the fruitless Google searches!

Yep...Peperomia caperata. I used to grow these in a tropical house. Not the easiest things to grow, i would've thought over watering and cold would be their killers.
