Piper sp. South Sumatra Green
Piper sp. South Sumatra Green is a cool, shingling Piper. It is native to Indonesia. It has spade-shaped green leaves with silvery white venation. It is not too difficult to root, and once rooted, it is a good grower. It is still quite uncommon in the USA. It prefers high humidity and moderate light. Moist Sphagnum moss is useful for rooting this species.
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
