Care Instructions:

Hey plant parents, it's time to give your Piper Crocatum some love! Here are some tips to keep your little tropical friend happy and healthy:

Watering: Keep your plant hydrated by watering it once a week during the growing season, and less often in the winter months. Just remember, the soil should be moist but not drowning in water!

Light: This plant loves a good tan, but be careful not to give it too much direct sunlight or it may end up looking like a crispy critter. Place it in a bright spot with indirect light, and watch those colorful leaves pop!

Temperature: Like any diva, the Piper Crocatum loves to be warm and cozy. Keep it in a room with temperatures between 60-85°F (15-29°C), and away from any cold drafts or air conditioning vents.

Humidity: This plant loves a good humidifier or misting session, so don't be shy to give it some extra moisture. Your plant will thank you with even more vibrant and beautiful leaves!

Soil: Your Piper Crocatum deserves a good potting mix that's formulated for indoor plants. Make sure the soil is well-draining to avoid any soggy roots. - Our Plant Perfect Aroid Mix will keep this thriving. 

Fertilizer: Treat your plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season. Yum, plant food!

Pruning: Give your plant a little trim now and then to keep it looking fabulous and in shape. You can also remove any yellow or dead leaves to keep it looking healthy and happy.

Pests: Ain't nobody got time for bugs! Keep an eye out for pesky mealybugs and spider mites, and treat your plant with an insecticidal soap if necessary.

There you have it, folks! With these tips, your Piper Crocatum will be the envy of all your plant-loving friends!
