Philodendron melanochrysum is a plant everyone needs in their home in our opinion! This stunning climbing plant with its velvety leaves that shimmer in the sunlight are completely and utterly drool worthy. This plants leaves get very large and long with maturity.
Pot diameter: 7cm clear
Light: Philodendron melano grow best in bright, indirect light. Please ensure it is not placed in direct sunlight as this can burn the leaves and/or fade the bright colours of the foliage. They will grow in medium to low light however it will not thrive.
Watering: This Philodendron likes humid conditions. This can easily be achieved by placing the plant under a glass dome ect. Allow the plant to dry out between waterings (ideally allow at least the top inch of soil to dry out before watering). Water thoroughly, allow the water to drain completely and never leave the plant to stand in water.
Growth: These guys can grow huge given the chance! (Over 2m long!)
Other: Please keep me away from hot or cold drafts.
