Hi Everyone,

This is my first post all thanks to my Peperomia. It has been growing well but off late the leaves are wilting and yellow. I am in Delhi and it's quite hot here...around 44 Deg centigrade.
I water the plants daily due to the heat.
I have tried placing the plant in the shade to avoid the bright sunlight.
I have attached the picture and it would welcome your advice to help recover the plant.

Thank you.

Hi, :) yes I agree too much water. Does that pot have drainage holes? Seems a bit small for the plant, from that pic.

Thank you.
Yes the pot has drainage holes.
The soil is usually dry and that's why I water it. Let me try watering it every third day or so. And also repot it to a bigger on

After a bit of googling it may well be too hot. I went around several sites and the largest number I saw was 80. Mind, thats comfortable, not lethal, temperature, but off the top of my head 43C is about 110F. That means your temperature is 30 degrees F hotter than that plant likes. It may be worth trying to find a cooler place for it, if possible.
