Piper Plant

Piper sp.


Piperaceae, is most closely related to the lizardtail family (Saururaceae), which in fact generally look like smaller, more delicate and amphibious pepper plants. Both families have characteristic tail-shaped inflorescences covered in tiny flowers.




Spotted this on my way to the famous rootbridge of Cherrapunjee, one of the wettest places in the world. Thankfully, most of it comes during the wet season. I was there in the dry and didn't see a drop.
