I bought this beauty today, and the seller wasn't able to tell me what it is.

I've tried several apps that usually work to identify plants, I've tried google image reverse search, nothing works

I'm hoping someone can tell me what this plant is so I can take the best care of it :)

Thank you !

Looks like

Senecio (Kleinia neriifolia)

which is a large bush when fully grown.

The plant is summer deciduous so yours is losing its leaves exactly as it should, right on schedule.

Continue to water when the soil is dry at depth through the summer, but do not water much more often than that in an attempt to compensate for the leaves falling. The plant will revive in the fall. It grows fall through spring and demands strong light during that period for best results. Ideally it should "see" the sun for hours a day if it will be indoors.

Welcome!
