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