Drying out despite watering :( why??

#Peperomia
1ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 5 months ago
It could be possible that he's rootbound!
The entire plant looks very dry, I’d suspect root rot at this point, thus the plant can’t take up water. If the soil doesn’t saturate at all when you water it, the soil is hydrophobic and the water isn’t getting to the roots.

This is a large pot for the size of this peperomia in my opinion. Most have pretty shallow root systems and like to be tight in the pot.
