4” Piper crocatum
Piper crocatum is an alluring plant that sports green leaves with silver and pink hued veining. The leaves have a glossy texture and are truly one of a kind!
Piper crocatum is a natural climber, so provide it with a pole or some other support structure to attach to. You can grow your Piper in a hanging basket but they prefer to climb.
These plants will put out small crystals on the back of the leaves. While commonly confused with a pest, these are called cystoliths and are not harmful to your plant.
Caring for your Piper crocatum is quite simple. They prefer a well draining soil rich in organic matter. Allow the soil to dry out about halfway between watering. Take care not to allow your Piper to sit in excess water. Provide your new plant with bright indirect light and watch it thrive!
Just a few days to wait. They were impeccably packed and they arrived happy with no damage. I like this company and will continue to order
Mine died after 2 days of receiving it. Temps were warm during shipping and receiving the package. My other plants that came with order is doing great. That one is in the grave
