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).

Such a nice plant

I enjoyed my experience with this company. All plants were packed for safe arrival and were very healthy upon arrival. Shipping was pretty quick and the price on some of the plants is pretty nice. I will be buying more plants here.

Nice looking plant!

Came in with 3 good sized leaves and 2 small. Great price for a 5 leaved plant. So healthy and beautiful and dark and velvety! Now the trick will be to get this guy to grow without unfurling leaves getting stuck, haha.

I’m in Love!!
