Philodendron Melanochrysum, also known as Black Gold Philodendron, is a rare climbing Aroid. It has long, heart-shaped velvet leaves of dark greenish-black that appear to be speckled with gold, and light green to white veining. As they grows, their vines will search for something to climb. A moss pole works very well, providing vertical support and a medium for the aerial roots to attach themselves to.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Allow the soil to mostly dry out between watering during the winter seasons. This tropical houseplant loves warm temperatures and has no cold hardiness. As the plant grows, it will most likely need a bamboo stake or moss pole to grow up, as it loves to grow up a stable structure.

Care Guide

How to take care of Philodendron Melanochrysum

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

Introducing the Philodendron Melanochrysum, a houseplant with striking velvety leaves that unfurl to reveal a rich, dark green surface, reminding us of the beauty hidden in every new beginning.

This exotic beauty stands out with its large, heart-shaped leaves that are dark green, almost black, and incredibly velvety. The Philodendron Melanochrysum embodies a kind of sublime elegance that is born out of simplicity, reminding us of the beauty that can come from staying true to our roots.

The Melanochrysum thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Its adaptive nature reminds us that while we might prefer some circumstances, we can learn to thrive in a variety of situations.

In terms of watering, this Philodendron likes its soil to be kept consistently moist but never waterlogged. This preference echoes the life lesson that balance and consistency often lead to the most beneficial outcomes.

As this plant matures, it grows in a climbing pattern, requiring the support of a moss pole or similar structure. Just as the Philodendron Melanochrysum leans on its support, we too are reminded of the importance of seeking support in our own growth journey.

Welcome the Philodendron Melanochrysum into your life. It's not just a plant; it's a symbol of resilience, an advocate for balance, and a testament to the power of support in personal growth.
