My Emerald Ripple Peperomia is losing new growth!

Hi everyone, I'm hoping to get some help with my Emerald Ripple Peperomia. I've had it for a few months now and it's been doing great, but lately I've noticed that it's been losing new growth.

New leaves will start to grow, but then they will die before they have a chance to mature. I'm not sure what's causing this, and I'm hoping someone here can help me figure it out.
1ft to light, indirect
6” pot with drainage

From what I understand these guys are a pretty susceptible to overwatering root rot. I’d check to see if the soil is holding on to too much moisture and if it is then I’d probably repot with a mix of well draining soil like coco coir, perlite, and vermiculite!
Sounds like a fungus that hasn’t shown its fangs or did you repot her recently?
