I told y’all I love philodendrons, and today do I have a PRIZE to show y’all! Kicking off today by highlighting the Philodendron Melanochrysum aka the Black Gold Philodendron. This is BY 👏🏻 FAR 👏🏻 one of my favorite philodendrons and most prized plants!
❤️ This philodendron is an exceptionally rare house plant, best known for having vibrant, heart-shaped leaves that sparkle in the sunlight. Baby leaves, like the one pictured above start out copper-red then transition into iridescent blackish-green as they mature 🖤
⚠️ Just a warning, because they require specific conditions that mimic their natural environment, these are not low-maintenance plants.
To keep a Black Gold Philodendron thriving:
🌱 Keep in bright, indirect light
🌱 Keep in high humidity
🌱 Water consistently, usually every 7-10 days or when the soil dries out
🌱 These pants love totem poles, as they are climbers and only with room to grow up will their leaves increase in size!
Tell me, what’s your favorite plant? 👇🏻
