Hello, I have a problem with my peperomia (Pilea peperomioides). As winter started, her leaves begun to fall. I dont think that this is due to over-watering becouse i only weter her when the soil is really dry. I don't suppouse it's problem with cold temerature either, cus' the room where the plant is, is warm. Could it be the lack of sunglight or maybe not enought water? Now is only few leaves left and Im worried she may be dying... Has anyone had a similar problem or can help me find out what could be the cause of the falling leaves?

You make no mention of where you live, Hannah. That could well be important. If you are in the northern lands and you have turned your furnace or radiators on, the dryness of the air may be an issue. Also with winter upon us, your plant may not be getting as much light as it wants.

Can you post a picture? It could be several things. Most likely, overwatering. Only water when the top 2 inches of soil is dry. It could also be root bound and need a new pot. It could need fertilizer. It could also be under watered, but only if you’ve neglected it for awhile
