It is using those leaves for energy to make a root system. Just be patient 😊 it may lose all its leaves to make a new growth point and start from scratch. Indirect light, warmth and fresh water once a week. It will get there (sometimes my cuttings take months πŸ₯Ή) If you want to boost its growth you can try and propagate it in a prop box instead. (Slightly moist spaghnum moss in a clear plastic box, lay cutting on top and leave in indirect light)
Mine were also shriveling up the first couple of days of placing my prop in a water container. It was using the energy and nutrient to produce roots!

Like @HoyaAddict said, be patient and in about a week, 2 weeks, you’ll *hopefully* start seeing roots!

I have placed mine under a grow light and it’s been growing like crazy over the last couple of days!

Good luck and happy growing! πŸͺ΄πŸ€—πŸ’•
@HoyaAddict and @kscape have great advice. Nice root porn @kscape. I have never seen a Cebu Blue Potho before. Never news they existed until now. Beautiful @EminentBeech I hope with there advice of help. Wishing you luck πŸ€ and happy growing!
@KikiGoldblatt i knowwww I’m obsessed with my tradescantia’s #RootPorn 😍😍
@KikiGoldblatt They’re on my #wishlistplant look how they mature when given light and height 😍
@HoyaAddict wow they are gorgeous. I just wondering how hard they are to care for. I know the Neons are super sensitive. Do they take more light than most pothos?
@HoyaAddict I see Etsy is having a sale on them. Tropical Plants of Florida I have bought numerous plants from and have had zero problems from them.
@KikiGoldblatt I think it’s probably a bit easier in care. I read that just water it when it starts to droop! I love a plant that talks to me 😊 Are you ordering one? Eee that’s exciting 🌱❀️
@HoyaAddict I thought about it but my husband is already complaining about the house looking like a jungle. I may order one not sure yet. They are beautiful.
@KikiGoldblatt haha, mine isn’t sick of me buying yet 🀣 I’m trying my best to make him love them (he says he does but I don’t see interest lmao)
@HoyaAddict Oh cool I might try that!!!
@EminentBeech I put about 90% of my propagations into a prob box. I only have about a 1% failure rate. They grow faster too! I’m sure you’ll also get addicted! Hehe
@KikiGoldblatt 🀣
@kscape what grow light do u have?
I decided to put growth hormone on the bottom of the stem of all my cuttings. It rotted half the stem on 1 of my pepperomia overnight! 😭 This is my second time trying to grow peperomia cuttings
@EminentBeech I use these! They’re currently on sale :)

Grow Light, Ankace 3 Head Timing, 5 Dimmable Levels Plant Grow Lights for Indoor Plants with Red Blue Spectrum, Adjustable Gooseneck, 3 6 12H Timer, 3 Switch Modes
@EminentBeech With propagating peperomias, I either leave them in a water container for a month and a half without touching it (other than changing the water every week), and I have a success rate of 98%! I also place them in a small plastic container and plant them in well draining potting mix. πŸ€—πŸͺ΄πŸ’•

They need some time to grow roots in order to produce for themselves. I know it’s tempting to want to use growth helping products, but leaving them alone for a couple of weeks is the best thing you can do for them :)
@kscape thanks!
