This has been the easiest plant baby. Rain has survived uneven watering schedules, overwatering by my kids, and even my husbands micromanaging. I’ve recommended her to all of my family and friends.

It revives itself quickly after going limp from being in the sun. Don’t put it on a windowsill, keep it on a shelf not too far from light but not close. Good plant.

It's doing this weird droop thing i can't figure out with its leaves and they've started browning in places. This is my first ever peperomia so it's probably on my part.
