    ...I could make it happier. I've put this plant in various places in my house but it has mostly declined over time. But, I like it so I'm hoping to do better by it.

    It looks like a Begonia of some sort to me.

    Very good.

    Definitely Pellionia pulchra.

    There is a difference between knowing and guessing.

    Begonia isn't the only genus with asymmetrical leaves.

    Ah, super, pulchra does look more like it. Apparently either would appreciate higher humidity than I've given it, so there's something to try improving on.
