You may be surprised to see that your Peperomia’s leaves have suddenly begun to droop dramatically, but rest assured that this is normal  and can be may be resolved quite easily.

Keep in mind that peperomia’s do not like to be underwatered, but they also do not like to dry out completely. Maintain a regular watering schedule, watering when the top two to three inches of soil get dry.
