Description

Similar to Philodendron fragrantissimum, but, it differs in its rosulate habit and without alternating between rosulate sections and elongate sections, and in the transverse section of the petiole, which is thicker, and sulcate on the adaxial side with keeled to winged margins, and rounded abaxially; the leaf blade is oblong-triangular in outline with a subcordate to emarginate base. In Philodendron fragrantissimum, the transverse section of the petiole is flatter and more triangular, and widely sulcate adaxially or flat with winged margins, and abaxially with central-rounded keels; the leaf blade is cordiform-subsagittate. Light in nature the species Philodendron melinonii is found growing high in the canopy perched out on the limb of a tree so I would provide bright indirect light, but watch out for direct sunlight as it may scorch her amazing leaves. Keep the soil moist at all times you can let her dry out a little but she prefers it moist.

Sunlight – The plant requires bright and indirect sunlight.

Watering – when the top 3cm of soil is dry to touch.

Plant Care – Philodendron species are known to be highly variable and not every leaf of every specimen will always appear the same.
