I recently got this plant at the botanical garden. I wasn't able to get information on what it is and how to take care of it. Can anyone help identify it?

Hmm, looks like a Celosia to me. Which, I've seen grown outdoors as annuals. I'm not sure how well it will do long term indoors.

Welcome @Kowsouy. Could you tell us where you are located and your growing zone? I grow these plants every year outside. They reseed some, but here in zone 7b, they are not hardy. Your plant looks like Feather Celosia (Celosia argentea 'New Look').
Here is a link to the plant in our database: Feather Celosia (Celosia argentea 'New Look')
