Philodendron Melanochrysum X Verrucosum is a hybrid that was cultivated by Keith Henderson.
It involves two of the most beautiful Philodendrons.
Philo. Melanochrysum is a beautiful species with long dark velvet leaves and white veins while Verrucosum has some of the most stunning velvet leaves with fuzzy petioles and dark maroon undersides.
The cross between them both produces an easy to grow and breathtaking hybrid. The top of the leaf is very dark green velvet with light colored veins. The underside of the leaf can have some slight dark coloring on the new foliage. The petioles are slightly rough and green.
A wonderful hybrid that is much easier to grow than its parents.
Thrives in a brightly shaded location with a well draining soil mix. Water when the top one third soil is dry.
