What plant is this? It's from Wal-Mart and it wasn't labeled. I also reverse image searched it and still found nothing. I need to know the name so I can properly take care of it. Help!

It needs much more light for best health and proper form. Provide as much light as you possibly can if it is going to live indoors, like right by your sunniest window, ideally. Looks like it's been a while since the plant saw the sun, so maybe give it a week or so near the window to build up some resistance before you put it right next to it.

Welcome!

After it has some time in strong light, you may consider repotting it (maybe by summer) to a pot just bigger than the rosette. The pot needs to have a hole at the bottom and it should be wider than deep. Use soil that is fast draining, with added perlite or pumice to about 50%. This plant is somewhat prone to rot when kept in low light or dense soil, or watered too much... water well when the soil is dry at depth and then wait for it to dry out again before you repeat.
