** Uncommon**  Philodendron Melanochrysum

The name suffix "melanochrysum" means "black gold" and refers to "tiny golden sparkles" sometimes observed when the leaves of the adult plant (which are dark, almost black) are in sunlight

Endemic to the wet Andrean foothills of Columbia growing about 500m above sea level 

A striking Aroid, first discovered by M. Andre, of Paris, and subsequently introduced by us direct from New Granada; it is by far the finest species of Philodendron for decorative purposes ever brought under cultivation. Its stately foliage when fully developed may be compared, for size and effectiveness, with that of Anthurium veitchii and Anthurium warocqueanum.”
