The Philodendron Melanochrysum thrives in similar conditions that it has in the tropics of South America, with bright and indirect light. The leaves can burn easily so avoid long, intense light exposures
Water when the first 5 cm of soil are dry. Water this plant thoroughly until some water starts to drain out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot
They are fine with regular indoor temperatures
Philodendron Melanochrysum loves nutrient-rich soil. Using a balanced liquid fertilizer is the way to go when thinking of feeding this plant
If leaves are browning or yellow you can remove them. If the plant is struggling to grow you can also prune some medium leaves. Groom as you see fit towards the base of the root
Many Philodendron Melanochrysum like to grow with plant support poles as the leaves are much heavier than the stem at the start. The plant support poles replicate the presence of a tree in the tropics
