GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
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. Philodendron plants can be grown in pots, hanging baskets or outdoors as a ground cover or beautiful tree wrap.

THIS SPECIFIC PLANT:  This is a semi-established tip cutting. If left to grow vertically, and in the right conditions, it will gradually produce larger leaves as it climbs up-wards. Please note the minor imperfections on the leaves. Please only purchase if you are researched and/or experienced in propagation, as this specific cutting will require the right care in order to thrive. 

CARE: It will require further propagation in order to produce a sturdy root system, so a humidifier, and heat mat is recommended. They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter (stay away from wet, mucky or dry, sandy soils), and grow best when provided with a mossy post or burlap wrapped pole to climb. It will require frequent watering to keep the soil moist (but not wet).  Humid conditions are ideal, so a humidifier is recommended, or misting the leaves a few times a day. Indoors plants thrive at temperatures between 12°c- 26°F and in lower light conditions than other house plants.
