Plant ID / Mystery Purchase

Pick this up at a store recently and have no idea what it is. It is growing and getting new leaves.

Can you take an overhead and maybe 45 above angle shot to better show leaf position and shape? I suspect the lack of replies is due to difficulty telling those things.

Is it a short stem plant? How tall is it? I feel like it looks familiar, but hard to tell from the image angle.

Here a few quick shots. Best I can get without removing the lid and light. If you want one from top down I can do it after the holiday.

Why do my pics upload rotated to the left?
