This plant has come a long way from its overwatered warty leaf days when I first got it, now it's looking healthy and has one enormous leaf about 3 times larger than the rest😆 swipe left to see..

This is a #raindroppeperomia suffering from #edema normally i wouldn't have taken a plant in this condition home but I was longing for one for some time, new growth looks fine so I have high hopes #peperomia #peperomiapolybotrya #peperomiaraindrop #peperomiapolybotryaraindrop

How are you treating this edema?

This is more of physical condition of the cells storing too much water rather than a treatable disease or virus, so I will be trying to practice proper watering and better soil conditions Laura and hopefully new growth will be unaffected @columbiariver

@tinaaune omg I bought the same plant (lowes?) It wasn't that obvious because I was there the same day they got them. Its so full with large leaves etc... I almost returned it, but am hoping I can save it. My new leaves are okay... please stay in touch id like to know if we both can save it. Do you suggest cutting off those leaves or letting them be?

Unfortunately the damage to those leaves are permanent but it will be interesting to see whether our plants make a recovery @leafylife it depends on if u can send to live with them, but I would only remove them if you have enough top growth, my first suggestion would be to cut it back rather than just removing the bad leaves, giving a more uniform look
