The Philodendron melanochrysum, also known as the Black Gold Philodendron, is known for its dramatic and captivating features, this species is celebrated among plant enthusiasts for good reason. The first thing you'll notice about the Philodendron melanochrysum is its lush, velvety foliage. The heart-shaped leaves are a deep, luxurious shade of green with a velvety texture that's simply irresistible to touch.
Provide bright, indirect light: Place your Philodendron melanochrysum in a location with bright, filtered sunlight. Avoid direct sun exposure, as it can scorch the leaves. If you notice the leaves becoming leggy or stretching towards the light source, consider adjusting its position to receive more indirect light.
Keep soil consistently moist: Water your Philodendron melanochrysum when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogged roots, which can lead to root rot. The frequency of watering may vary depending on factors such as humidity levels and the size of the pot. During the growing season (spring and summer), you may need to water more frequently, while in the dormant season (fall and winter), reduce watering slightly.
