What Is This Houseplant?

I got this as a gift. I usually have a pretty good green thumb, but it looks droopy. How do I care for it? What is it?

It looks like a coleus to me. They need well-drained soil and partial light.

I believe your plant belongs to the Rex Begonia family/species and these can be very beautiful house plants.
There are so many varieties that you may never find one that looks exactly like yours and of course, many factors can change the colors such as light, water, fertilizer, or air current but these are usually called an easy care plant.

Here is a link to photos on Google so you can see how many varieties exist.

Here are a couple of good links that give care instructions:

It looks to me like a Rex Begonia. They really hate to be over watered so let to top few inches of the pot dry out before watering. It could even use some miracle grow or other plant food to give it a boost from its obvious stress.
