The Piper crocatum is a tropical vining plant that can climb but doesn't generally choose to. It has shiny leaves with pink colouration that sparkles under the sun. This is relatively easy to grow as long as you don't overpot it and keep it over 15°C over winter. Growing indoors is best in Australian southern states. 

Current Pot Size: 80mm

Light: Category x (please see our blog on plant light requirements)

Soil: Soil type x (please see our blog on soil requirements)

Fertiliser: As directed on your fertiliser of choice. Fortnightly or monthly during the growing season

Watering: Don't over water, they like to dry out between waterings. 

Maintenance: These plants produce sugar excretions on the underside of the leaf. This is completely normal and will turn black over time. 

Postage is a flat rate of $18, spend over $80 and it's free! Live plants can only be posted directly to NSW, ACT, QLD, VIC, SA. Plants can be sent to WA, NT and TAS via a plant concierge. Please see our blog on quarantine states for more information.

All plants pictured are considered an accurate representation of the plant you will receive. It represents the rough size, colour and condition. These are plants however and due to changes in climatic conditions and plant variation there will be minor differences.

Please note that we use 'Bugs for Bugs' regularly as a preventative control measure for pests. These predatory bugs are administered in vermiculite. This vermiculite is sprinkles onto the leaves and sometimes remains. 

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
