Please can anyone identify my new houseplant? I was told it is a "Wandering Jew", but that sounds a bit non-PC, and when I Googled the above, I only saw pics of a purple plant!
It might be a Philodendron, but I'd love to know which one, as there appear to be over 468 varieties!
Thank you so much from Canada.
Three pics attached. Thank you.

I believes you are correct, it is Philodendron hederaceum var. oxycardium 'Brasil'
