Philodendron melanochrysum is a spectacular vining philodendron that when mature produces 2’ long leaves of iridescent black-green with pale green veins. The juvenile leaves emerge with bronze tones. A native of the tropical Americas, its juvenile form creeps along the jungle floor and has small 2-4” round leaves. Once it begins to climb a tree or other vertical object, the leaves increase in size and come into their full glory. This philodendron needs 4-5’ of vertical growing space to develop into its mature form. Philodendron melanochrysum prefers to be grown in warm temperatures with indirect lighting near a window. Higher than average humidity recommended for best results.
