A beautiful deep-green velvet philodendron with contrasting light veining. It may not look like much as a baby, but when mature, these amazing plants develop huge, elongated leaves, with lobed ears and prominent veining.

This plant is a climber and thrives by growing up trees in nature. Giving your Melanochrysum a totem or moss pole will allow it to attach roots and form bigger leaves as a result.

CARE:

Prefers a warm, humid spot with bright indirect light indoors, or outdoors in a sheltered position. Use a well-draining potting soil (an aroid mix is ideal) and allow soil to partially dry out before watering. Fertilise throughout spring and summer.

PLEASE NOTE:
All pictures are of plants currently for sale or previously sold at The Tropic Gardener. The plant photographed should be used as an indication of size and quality only and may not be the exact plant you receive. Form and colour will vary slightly.
