    about this plant

    Philodendron Melanochrysum is striking even among the stunning lineup that is the Philodendron family and is sometimes referred to as the Black Gold Philodendron because of the beautiful gold accents on her leaves. Her leaves, which start out like a fleshy pink before turning almost black with age, get bigger and bigger as she gets taller, so you can enjoy them even more! She is a climber so will be happiest when she has something like a mossy stick to climb up. This weird PLNT blends exotic and refined and will be the centerpiece of any display.

    Even though it can be very tempting to start your plant collection with this beauty, we would recommend starting with a different plant if you are a beginner plant parent. Also, take note that every plant is unique and not all plants will have the same leaf length as the product images show.

    Despite looking like a starlet, the Philodendron Melanochrysum doesn’t have a lot of requirements. She does not need a lot of water, but it is important to keep the soil constantly moist and not to let it dry out, so it’s best to give her regular small splashes of water. She can stand anywhere in the house, except in full sun. In the spring and summer, the growing season, give her some extra organic PLNTS nutrition on a regular basis to help her to add size.

    healthy plant with big leafs. The leafs did have some scarring on all of them tho, but not too bad.

    the leafs are torn and a bit damaged (they have holes and scratches), nevertheless the plant seems healthy, a new leaf is sprouting already!

    Fast delivery but there is certainly room for improvement when it comes to the quality of the plant. Even though this Philodendron arrived in a plastic container, it was damaged. The support stick had pierced the largest leaf of three and the leaf edges of two leaves were somewhat torn.

    beautiful plant, just like pictured. Practically 0 damage.

    This is such a star! It’s been on my list for a while and I was happy to buy it on the rare plnts day. It arrived in mint condition with four leaves and a fifth one ready to pop out.

    BEAUTIFUL plant that arrived to Portuguese after 5 days. Came with 3 massive roots that are all in good condition. The heat pack was thrown in on top of the packaging so I doubt it really did much but luckily we didn't have any snap weather changes and all in all it was ok.

    A little smaller as expected, still a beautiful plant. The soil was very very wet as it arrived

    I totally love this plant! Came in with 4 huge leaves (cca 18 cm or so), looks healthy in general and did't get any major shipping stress. However it seems to be packed quite carelessly because all the leaves were kinda crunched inside the plastic box it came in and all of them suffered some mechanical damage. The new leaf coming in seems to be a little dried out and crunchy on the outside so I'm curious how it looks when unfurled. It still looks like it loves life so it's gonna be fine and I love it ♥️

    arrived with much larger leaves than in the photo and 100% healthy. i love this plant

    I love my melano

    Unfortunately the plant arrived with very wet soil, so I had to repot it right away, a small part of the roots had also begun to rot, so I had to trim the roots, but overall the plant still looked good. I contacted customerservice to get some advice on how to make sure that the plant survives, and they wrote back the next day, with some good advice, and they even offered me a full refund. 4 stars, because the plant was overall really beautiful, it came with 5 leaves and a new one on the way and the customerservice was great.

    The plant was in great shape and bigger than expected
    Sarah Jimenez - 28 March 2021
    It has 3 leaves, 2 were in perfect condition and 1 has tiny tear caught in the packaging but overall gorgeous!
    Alexandra-Catalina Uiuiu - 11 March 2021
    Plant is gorgeous, arrived in good conditions, has 3 leaves and another one is on its way! :)

    My only critique is that PLNTS has made it too easy for me to indulge in my new plant obsession! This stunning plant came looking stunning with three big-medium sized leaves and another on the way! The packaging is so impressive, any transit damage was minimal and the plant has acclimated well to the fussy weather in Ireland. So happy with this purchase! :)

    Mine arrived with 4 nice leaves around 16cm long and a fifth one was on the way. Almost perfect condition only the top leave knocked against the top of the stick and had a little indentation. Definitely recommend

    Absolutely gorgeous plant! Arrived quickly and in great condition. It has three big leaves (one of them is still brown, which means it's a new leaf) and one small leaf. It's bigger than i thought. Love love love it!
