I'm absolutely positive its not bacon. Looks more like a Croton.

My phone's auto-incorrect always makes 'cotton' either 'cotton' or 'bacon.' It's weird. Rolling on the floor laughing

Yes, croton.

When the question is, "Bacon?" My answer is always yes!

But agree that your plant looks like some form of Croton. Botanical epithet = Codiaeum variegatum:
