GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Philodendron Melanochrysum is a species of flowering plant in the family Araceae, endemic to the wet Andean foothills of Colombia.
  • It is a beautiful tropical plant and the dark green (almost black) crystalline leaves show off a bright yellow vein.
  • The yellow vein traces its’ way through the leaf to form a unique pattern.
  • The crystalline appearance on the leaves resembles specks of gold, and in fact, “Melanochrysum” means “black gold”.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It prefers a well-drained but moist, rich organic mix.
  • Remember try to stay away from wet, mucky, or dry, sandy soils.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Feed it with a balanced liquid foliage houseplant fertilizer that contains macro-nutrients.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Set the plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight.
  • While it’s normal for older leaves to yellow, if this happens to several leaves at the same time, the plant may be getting too much light.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • When growing philodendron plants, allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.
  • The length of your index finger to the first knuckle is about an inch, so inserting your finger into the soil is a good way to check the moisture level.
