    Sorry, can't identify you or the plant.

    Post another picture when the plant is in bloom.

    Might be Acalypha reptans (syn. A. pendula), Dwarf Chenille Plant.

    Haven't been able to absolutely identify with any ground cover type plants I am familiar with.
    Something about the node distance between the petioles makes me feel that is quite significant, for it is larger than most on vines.
    Also, the leaf shade/texture seems similar to several of the vines with some form of "creeper" in the common name.

    Maybe something in the "mint" family?

    Excelent point - besides the visual, are there any other clues such as:

    Is there a scent with the plant or when the leaves are crushed?
    What soil did it come in?
    Even something from experience with prefered light or moisture can help to show prefered living conditions. Here's a possible site to use - I think only the tree/shrub section is the fully functional (shown to me by an arborist). Perhaps it will help you: Noble Foundation Plant Image Gallery

    Looking closely at the leaf texture and shape of edges, I would have to say no.
    Ficus has waxy leaves, smooth edges, and lack of noticeable veining.
