Philodendron melanochrysum is an absolutely stunning aroid from the Andean foothills of Colombia. This Philodendron has a juvenile form and a mature form. Both are sought after, but the mature form is an absolute stunner. We sell the immature form, in the forms of cuttings and potted plants. These have 2-4 inch leaves that have beautiful dark emerald, round leaves with lighter green venation The mature form leaves can get up to 2 feet long! This Philodendron grows well in low to moderate light in its immature form, but its mature form usually requires brighter light / dappled sunlight. This Philodendron adheres well to backgrounds, driftwood, etc, and is a moderate growing species.
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
