Plant seen inside he Conservatory.
For validation.

Was there a name plate?  

I had found this on searching. Looks close.
Pilea Species for sure.

To me also appears close as per images at Pilea mollis

The most popular Pilea mollis has the name 'Moon Valley'; here we grow this as a house plant.

Thanks ... Can we also think of Pilea involucrata?

Yes ...! ID is correct !

Thanks ... for the additional information.
