This is common on new plants, just let it grow and it will likely be just fine.

Yeah, likely it's just adapting to a change in conditions or shock from being shipped. Nothing to worry about. Just keep taking good care of it and I'm sure it'll send out larger leaves soon!

I deleted several posts because of childish bickering/behavior. Knock it off! Either a suspension or ban is next.
