"Black Gold" Elongated heart-shaped leaves of dark velvet with a lovely coppery sheen and delicate ivory veins. Probably similar to P. melanochrysum. Thrives in high humidity and low light. This is one of the true beauties of the philodendron world. Not a houseplant unless grown in a wardian case and you will need a tropical greenhouse has it matures.
We propagate this plant AFTER receiving your order; thus, expect a wait time.
There is a current HOLD on shipping this Andreanum as it is increadibly chill sensitive. The hold may last until early Spring 2019. You may order it but expect a wait time.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
