Piper Crocatum is a rare vining plant with glossy dark green leaves and pale pink veins. This stunning plant grows along woody pink vines, and needs high humidity to really thrive. You'll know this one is happy when the plant is secreting clear & black sugar crystals on the backs of the leaves. This one is striking and unusual.
Piper Crocatum likes bright indirect light. Water when the soil is half dry, but be careful not to underwater as the new growth will shrivel and leaves will develop with deformities.
