Piper nigrum [hort] Black Pepper Vine

Piper nigrum [hort]
Piper nigrum [hort]
Stock Number: 53507
Availability: In Stock
Family: Piperaceae
Cultural Code: HP TGH what's this?

"Black Pepper Vine" Small leathery deep green heart leaves on strong vines--the source of commercial peppercorns. Quite easily grown low-light houseplant. Used in Asia also to treat food poisoning, to aid digestion. As with most of the Pipers, as the new leaves unfurl a scrufty surface wax (which protects the tender new growth) accumulates: do not decide that you have an outbreak of insects--you only are observing an outbreak of wax produced by the plant itself.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
