    This plant came out of nowhere in my D. peltata pot. Surprising as I have the pot indoors the whole time. Thanks for any information.

    Hmmm... I'm gonna guess some kinda fern. Fern spores can lay dormant for a long time in peat/sphagnum. I would let it go unless it starts taking over.

    hmm...you might want to pot is separately, keeping it in conditions similar to its original neighbor--sans the dormancy. Then you can see what it grows into!

    Thanks for the comments. I don't think it's nasturtium, but I can see why you suggested it. Oh, the picture has been updated such that it doesn't have that glare anymore.

    Not nasturtium for sure. My vote is for geranium although with a plant so small its hard to tell. Anyone have any geraniums in your house?

    Will be fun to see what it grows into.

    Nope. No geraniums in here. I think geranium leaves are more ruffled, but this plant is quite young. I had the D. peltata since last Dec. It could be some kind of plant which has a dormancy period.

    I first though it was nasturtium too, but now I think it's a Geranium like PlantAKiss said. Geraniums come in a wide variety of leaf shapes.
