Philodendron melanochrysum

Another striking Aroid hailing from the warm, humid rainforest floors of Colombia, the Philodendron melanochrysum sits at the top of many plant collectors wish-lists. Starting life off small and understated, the Melanochrysum slowly grows into an elegant mass of long, velvety dark green foliage, and once it reaches maturity, gives off a shimmering black and gold iridescence when touched by sunlight. This Philodendron loves to climb and will reward you with bigger, more dramatic leaves if given a moss pole or support stick to wrap around.
