Recovered from.gnats, started to regrow and now drooping.
#RaindropPeperomia
The stem is black only at the top, stem is firm not soft and soil is dry (to combat suspected rot). Watering infrequently. recovered from.gnats about 6 months ago, began to grow a new lesf which has now died/drooped the stem only. There is a new frond coming up and i want to make sure it doesnt die too :(
6” pot with drainage
Last watered 3 months ago
When you suspected root rot did you check the roots? If not I would suggest you have a look and treat the roots and replace the soil. You may still have a issue. Could also be to intermittent watering. Fungus nats are annoying but will not hurt the plant as under watering due to root damage can.
@LegitimateOnion @strawberrymoon is excellent with these. I had one at one time a ended up killing it.
I agree with @Gordo - these plants do not appreciate intermittent watering. I have found that watering is a fine line with these pants.
Thanks all! Will take out and inspect the roots again. Ive got it on an 8 day watering cycle now - is this too intermittentn
@LegitimateOnion should e fine. I hope the plant recovers for you.
