Peperomia Hope - Common Problems

My plant’s leaves are dull and fading: Peperomia Hope cannot tolerate direct sunlight. Move away from the sun. 

Why are my plant stems really long and stretched out: This usually happens when the plant is not getting bright enough to medium light.

The middle of my plant is rotting and dying off: Don’t water directly into the center of the plant, try to water along the edge of the pot. Too much water at the crown of the plant will cause rot. Bottom water whenever possible.

Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown.
