  • Melanochrysum is a large velvet leaf variety of philodendron whose leaves start out pink with light green veins and slowly matures into a deep dark green with a velvety texture.
  • This plant does require a totem or some sort of pole to climb otherwise it will tendency to meander and droop.
  • This is a superior variety philodendron which is quite easy to grow.


  • Melanochrysum Philodendrons enjoy well drained but moist, rich organic mix.
  • Remember try to stay away from wet, mucky or dry, sandy soils.


  • To help establish your new Melanochrysum Philodendron, fertilize sparingly at least 6 inches away from the base, tri-annually with a slow time released product. Unfertilized they will tend to grow very slowly. Note: The heavy salts in cheaper fertilizers will damage the roots and possibly kill the plant.

  • For an even and healthy plant, you should always hydrate your Philodendron melanochrysum.
