You might find a baby coffee plant, they are pretty common among the 3-4 inch starter plants. They will branch sideways. It seems pretty easy care for me (3-4 years) and has been in my low light bedroom all winter with barely a hiccup. Leaves are dark green, slightly wavy, and glossy- pretty! Wilts when dry, but recovers well, seems to be sort of a thirsty plant.

Approximate date. Nothing was done with him for a long time, he just chilled in his nice big pot.
