4" Philodendron melanochrysum


 Bright indirect light

 Water when top 1-2" of soil is dry


Philodendron melanochrysum are an extraordinary species, commonly referred to as "Black and Gold".  They get this name from the new leaves emerging a gold color and then slowly fading to a dark green/black.  

Philodendron melanochrysum will grow large elongated leaves if you allow them to climb!  It's best to give them a pole or other support structure to attach to so they can live their best life!  

These make a great indoor plant and will be the centerpiece of any room!

Philodendron melanochrysum care:

Ensure that your plant receives bright indirect light.  Allow the soil to dry out almost completely between watering as they do not like to sit in excess water.

Additional info:

Philodendron is one of the most popular genuses of Aroid that are currently in cultivation, with over 450 named cultivars.

Philodendron vary greatly in their natural habits, but you will find a large number of them located in Latin America. Their leaves range from small to medium to large to gigantic! You'll find Philodendron with smooth, glossy foliage and some with velvety foliage!

If you allow Philodendron to climb, their foliage will usually get much larger the higher up they get. While this isn't true for all Philodendron species -- it is for most. We recommend a coco pole to really get your Philodendron growing!

For the most part, Philodendron are easy to care for.

The name Philodendron comes from the greek words "philo" (love or affection) and "dendron" (tree).

Very Pretty Little Thing

This was recommended for its beautiful leaves that grow huge and start shiny and then darken. I got a moss pole alongside this purchase, and I have high hopes that it will grow up big! Intricately packaged and arrived with zero damage. Highly recommend this lovely specimen.
