So my Watermellon plant is looking pretty sad.
I have it in some sunlight but not a whole lot. It is sitting next to a window tho. The leaves are drooping any new grow dies off. Also I have lost some leaves along the way. Do I need more water? More sunlight??

First thing I could think of is the pot is a little too big. Typically peperomias (and succulents in general) like their roots to be crowded and would prefer to stay in their plastic nursery pots until root bound. I think the best thing is to size down like 1-2 inches and make sure he’s drying out completely before each watering :)
Hmmm, poor baby. Overwatering and fungal diseases are most common peperomia issues. I agree with a smaller pot also. They also like a light, well draining soil. Here’s a site that might help: https://leafyplace.com/watermelon-peperomia/ Hope it helps! πŸͺ΄πŸ€πŸ€žπŸ»
