Philodendron Melanochrysumas black-gold philodendron, are a rare type of vining philodendron that have become popular as houseplants due to their gorgeous foliage. Their velvet leaves come in shades of dark green with brilliantly contrasted yellow veins and can get as large as 24 inches long. While these plants can be difficult to come across, they are surprisingly easy to care for once you finally have one in your possession. 

WateringThese tropical plants require regular watering in order to grow well. As a general rule, you should water your philodendron melanochrysum once the top 2 to 3 inches of soil has dried out. Water your plant thoroughly until water drains from the pot’s drainage holes.

Light: Philodendron Melanochrysum naturally grow as forest understory plants where they receive dappled, indirect light. When grown indoors, it is best to try and replicate these conditions by choosing a location for your melanochrysum that receives bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing these tropical plants to prolonged periods of direct sunlight as the leaves can burn easily. 

Temperature & Humidity: Philodendron melanochrysum grow well in standard household temperature and humidity levels. However, they grow best in above-average humidity where possible. If you have a greenhouse or can place a humidifier near your plant—it will appreciate it!

Toxicity: It's toxic for both humans and pets when ingested.
