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

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.
