my plant’s leaf is turning dark brown / black?

hi! i just recently got this plant (2 in big in a 3in pot currently) and i noticed it’s smaller leaf is turning a very dark color. the end of its stem is also a muddy brown color. i keep my plant near a grow light (with plenty of shade i thought) and im just concerned what this could be. ive never cared for this plant before so i just want to remedy whatever is happening w this asap. i did also notice a gnat messing w it earlier today so i currently have it quarantined from my other plants. #Peperomia

Looks fungal. You can use Arber Bio-fungicide and it should stop it from spreading, but you will need to remove that leaf and change out the soil … welcome to the #GregFam #Gregverse you can go to grow and learn about the company, I highly recommend them!!! πŸ¦‹πŸͺ΄πŸžπŸŒ΅πŸ¦ŽπŸœοΈ
@SuperblyLilac okay thank you! should i do anything about the browning at the bottom part of the stem?
@uhimsav it should be ok… keep a close eye on it! Also maybe get a smaller pot.. then change it up as it comes back bigger. πŸ¦‹
@SuperblyLilac thank you so much for your help!🩷
