This plant is part of the Piperaceae family of plants and has a beautiful semi succulent texture and formation. It is a trailing plant that has big juicy vines with clusters of 2-4 leaves at each node and makes for a real statement plant. The leaves are fleshy in texture and are a lovely soft green with a delicate stripe. As big fans of propagation this plant has quickly become one of our favourites as you can propagate from just a single leaf!
