To get the most out of this beautiful plant we recommend to let the Philodendron Melanochrysum climb onto a moss pole. Once the plant really attached itself to the moss pole it will continue to grow and should produce bigger leaves each time. (Don’t re-pot the plant straight after shipping, let the plant acclimatize for a while.)
Philodendron Melanochrysum has the most beautiful velvety leaves, we are so in love with this rare plant! The new leaves emerge in a bronze color with bright green veins. When the leaves of the Philodendron Melanochrysum mature they become dark green.
Note before purchase: The few Melanochrysum we currently have in the store are very large, as also shown in the photo. We advise not to purchase other plants with this Melanochrysum so we can easily put it in the box and ship it out safely to you. Due to the high demand on this plant we only allow one plant per customer.
