Default Root rot stress???

So I recently purchased some plants from Encanto Nurseries. If you have not been there before...OMG. I felt like a kid in a (dense rainforest like) candy store. It is seriously awesome. They are good people, if you plan to visit make sure you "call before you come" though and let them know you would like to visit.
Anywho,
When I got the plants home i put them in a temp pot untill i could plant them. The next 4 days saw some rain and cold temps. The praying hands did not get alot of light and didnt have the best drainage. Below are pics of the stress it has been displaying. I think some root rot set in and that with the temp hitting in the 50's. What do you think?
if it is root rot what will happen to the plant? Should i cut it down and then let it grow back next year? Is there any way to treat it? Thanks for the advice guys!!!

if you mean root rot be very careful, once it gets to a point no turning back..caught early always a chance..cutting it back is an option,you said only temp pot..when you switch look close at roots and go from there..keep updated..moderate sun until recovered..

Ok.. thanks. How long would it take for root rot to set in with ideal bad conditions?
