Piper sp. Laos
Piper sp. Laos is an unnamed species in the black pepper family. It has elliptical green leaves with a blush of shimmery purple that develops as the plant ages. The leaves and stems produce a natural secretion, tiny opaque dots, called cystolyths along with black pepper specs. These little crystals & specs are sometimes thought to be pests, but are not harmful & the plant should be secreting them!
