A stunning Colombian native from the moist Andean foothills, melanochrysum can be found growing up to 500m in the provinces of Chocó and Antioquia. It's another spectacular velvet-leaf Aroid that will blow your mind when it's mature! Even at a small size, the black velvet leaves have a sheen of gold, giving this plant the name the black gold philodendron. These are vining plants that can eventually produce leaves around 2ft long!
Warm, humid conditions and a moss totem pole will help this plant grow quickly. Slow-release fertilizer preferred.
