This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Piper Betel aka Paan leaf which is a popular plant in Asia where the locals chew it with Areca nut. I have made cuttings from this 3 yr old plant successfully, it is indoor grown not for growing outdoors as intolerant to cold. This plant is approx 18in tall, very easy to maintain has vining habit. Compost is normal free draining does not like being waterlogged. Light conditions near a window but not near draughts. This variety is known as Bangla Paan as it is originally from Bangladesh.
