Piper betle is an evergreen climbing shrub producing woody stems 5 – 20 meters long. The stems produce adventitious roots, with which they can adhere to other plants etc for support. The plant was probably originally native to Malaysia, but it was taken into cultivation more than 2,500 years ago and is no longer known in the wild. It is commonly used as part of a masticatory mix which also involves the Betel palm and also has a range of medicinal uses.
