For your Peperomia, also known as the Jelly plant, they typically thrive in bright, indirect light and prefer well-draining soil. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings, as they don't like to be constantly wet. As for the beat-up leaves, just give the plant some time to acclimate to its new environment. With proper care, it should start to recover and produce new healthy leaves. Be gentle with it and avoid moving it around too much while it adjusts.

A well-draining soil mix works best for Peperomia plants. You can use a commercial potting mix designed for houseplants and add some perlite or sand to improve drainage. This helps prevent overwatering and root rot, which are common issues with Peperomias.
