This Philodendron has performed very well for us here in the nursery and is much easier to grow than other forms of Verrucosum. Leaves have the same velvety texture, however they grow larger and with fewer pest problems. This is a fast-growing variety with undersides of deep maroon veined with yellow.
Philodendron Splendid 'Melanochrysum x Verrucosum'
They grows best in bright, indirect light. Anthurium care also requires that the soil be free draining but hold some water. If you are growing this plant as a houseplant, half and half mix of potting soil and orchid soil or perlite will provide the kind of soil anthuriums prefer.
