Looks to be Herniaria glabra

Looks more like Pilea microphylla to my eyes. I don't think it will make it through a German winter. Herniaria leaves are actually opposite, for the most part.

Andrew, did you plant it in the ground? The Bryophyllum on the right side will not survive there, too

i didn't plant it. it grows up beside the plant that i brought from tw by itself.

what do you meant by The Bryophyllum on the right side will not survive there ? are you saying they won't survive winter ?
then i have dig them up to pass winter then. wonder how big is their root bulb.

The plants on the right side of the photo looks to be succulent, Bryophyllum. They don't withstand cold nor frost. And there are normal roots, no bulbs.

BTW, many small plantlets grow on the edge of the leaves?
