Please to ID this plant I bought off the corner today! Any idea what it is?
Gardenia/some kinda ginger ideas don't exactly fit, and I haven't been able to Google the answer.

Grateful for any thoughts and thank you.

Welcome to Welcome!

The leaves do look like my gardenia plant. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

It does look like Clusia rosea (autograph tree).
