Black Pepper Vine is a mottled green vine which produces strings of ball-like berries, which can be dried and crushed into pepper, one of the most found spices in the world. To ensure that the plant flourishes, a series of conditions must first be met. The amount of sunlight that the vine should receive depends on the climate. If the summer is mild, then it should receive up to 5 hours of direct sunlight per day, but if it is a harsh summer, then two hours of direct sunlight or even constant partial shade will suffice. It should be planted in loose, well-draining soil and watered 3-4 times a week. If these conditions are met, the vine will grow to the height of the pole or trellis that it is planted next to.
