    So guys what do you think is causing the damage? Plants just keep growing but they all seem to have gotten this.

    Top leaf one seems to have thicker damaged spots
    the smaller seems to have the same thing I put both in to show both sides damaged.

    It looks like you've got a bit of edema on the larger leaf (the raised lesions), which is basically ruptured cells from a rapid uptake of water- it happens with Peperomia.

    As for the other damage, I'd suspect thrips. but I haven't seen them damage Peperomia before.

    Damage does look like thrips, little buggers.

    A scourge, to be sure. They have to be the worst pest I've ever wrangled with.
