Thread OP
When I bought this peperomia rosso in January it was in bad shape so I was hoping I could nurse it back to health. I think the problem was overwatering because it basically had no roots left and was dropping leaves like crazy. So I let it dry out for a while and have started watering it only when the soil is dry. As you can see it has given me some flowers and there is some nice healthy growth on there, but some leaves are still yellowing and the leaves don't have that glossiness to them. It just looks sad. Is there anything else I can do? I feel like the root system isn't strong enough and I'll eventually lose all the leaves

I think your Peperomia is doing fine and will continue to as long as you water it consistently. Water it when no more than the top half-inch of soil feels dry and always water thoroughly.

Some of the older, larger leaves are starting to die back and that will continue. However, its future lies with the new smaller growth leaves that look healthy.
