Piper crocatum

  • Rare, slow-growing vining houseplant, related to black peppercorn.
  • Grown for its unusual, silver- and pink-mottled foliage with pink undersides.
  • A unique gift for a plant collector!

Care:

  • Light: Bright; prefers morning sun (east window).
  • Water: Allow the top 30-50% of soil to dry between watering. Avoid overwatering, or allowing the soil to remain dry for extended periods.
  • Fertilizer: Use an all-purpose fertilizer such as Schultz Indoor Plant Food (10-15-10) once or twice monthly.
  • Other tips: Grows best in an undersized pot. Use well-drained potting soil, such as Pro-Mix Tropical Plant Mix with extra perlite or small Orchiata added. Leaf margins may brown under low humidity; mist frequently or use a humidifier if necessary. Plants naturally produce drops of sap on leaf undersides and stems.
