    It looks like a rubber plant -ficus elastica
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Try clusia rosea. I just binned mine this week actually, one of those impulse Ikea plants that I never really got on with. It grew well enough but it was a bit big and too much work. They can tolerate neglect but are oddly quite needy plants if you want them to grow well. They like plenty of water and humidity and bright light ideally although they will do ok if it's a bit shadier. They're supposed to be great air purifiers though.
    A great library has something in it to offend everybody.

    I have a rubber plant and it looks completely different. Although im not an expert in plant so you probably knows best.

    i will do more research and see. Maybe i’ll find a way to have her happier :)

    thank you for taking the time to answer :)
