Hello! New to this forum. Just received my first shipped young plant in the mail this week. Came from Houston and was in transit for about a week. It's a fairly young plant so I know I should expect some shock but the two smallest leaves are yellowing. It's in moist sphagnum moss. The two largest leaves are looking relatively happy and the third largest leaf looks ok minus a brown spot that I was aware of before hand.

Are these leaves goners and should I snip them? I want to make sure it has everything it needs to thrive but I don't want to shock it anymore. I also would like to move it to a different pot with some Aroid soil and unclear when exactly that should happen. All that's been done so far since receiving on Wednesday was watering the dried out moss and placing on a pebble tray in a east facing window with consistent bright indirect light.

Any help is appreciated!

You want to repot these plants into a larger pots but don't go any bigger than a 100mm or (6 inch plastic pot) in the beginning. After a growing season you can up pot a couple more inches. Use a light and airy, potting mix, so the chance of overwatering over the colder months is reduced. You can remove any leaf that turns yellow. Good luck
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
