‼️Plant emergency ‼️

My pincushion peperomia is losing a lot of pins and some are turning black at the tip. I just moved it to sit in the window is there anything else I should do?
5” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 year ago
Are a lot of the pins turning black? I just have a few that do that too. I think mine was affected by how much I move. It kinda gets a little stressed. I wouldnt worry too much because I really didn’t know how to take care of mine for a long time but now it’s like over a foot tall.
I've noticed only a few have turned black after sitting there for a while. Should I remove them before they do?
too much water pooling in the bottom is usually the reason. Make sure when you water that you allow any excess water to drain out before you’re done. I tip mine to the side, back and forth until no more water 💧 drips out. It looks like otherwise you’re doing things right.
@chappedlips if you don’t like the way it looks then I’d remove them. Otherwise they’ll most likely drop off with time.
It’s a pretty resilient plant 👍🪴. Right now one of mine is dropping some yellowing leaves because I left it sitting in water 💦 too long but at the same time is throwing out new growth and what looks like will become a flower! 😆
