Peperomia 'hope' still inflated and happy

Remember my balloon guy?

After two days, he is still inflated!! However weirdly enough, he seems perfectly healthy and is showing no signs of unhappiness.

This balloon may be his new little quirk now, seeing as he seems pleased with it lol #GregGang #HappyPlants
2ft to light, indirect
Last watered 3 months ago
He's gassy! πŸ˜œπŸ˜³πŸ’¨
It looks like a whoopee cushion 😭😭 Love it though!! Keep it. It is his signatureℒ️
It may be edema. This happens ehen the plant takes up water more quickly than it can use it. Don’t remove it because sometimes that makes it worse. Avoid overwatering, make sure there is room around the plant for good air flow, ensure the soil drains well and move it closer to the window for more sun. Definitely do not mist the plant or have it near a humidifier. ❀️
@TruthfulApricot Thank you so much! I haven't been watering him a lot or very often so it may go down yet, will probably move him to a spot with more sun later
@LittleSongbird LOL he can just be the whoopee cushion plant
@smugwort You should change his name to Whoopee in your oasis! πŸ˜‚
Isn’t that so neat!!!
I think what's done it's done. The tissue has been severed. The leaf needs time, probably a lot of time to undo this. Have patience @smugwort , the plants will love you for that πŸ˜œπŸ€—πŸ’šπŸͺ΄
He's gassy and classy! πŸ˜‰πŸ€ͺ @UltraKoreanfir
Keep him away from my cactus LOL
🀣 yeah, that would not be a good match right now.
@TruthfulApricot LOLLL I'm gonna do that right now πŸ˜‚
