I received a new Monstera Adansonii In the mail on Saturday. It was bone dry when I unpacked it, I watered all the way through and dumped the water that drained out, and it seemed to be happy the rest of the day. When I woke up on Sunday morning, the two new leaves that had previously been perky and happy were drooped completely over (see picture). Any ideas? Will they recover?

New leaves of many aroids do that regardless of the fact that the plant was probably really stressed during shipping and needs time to recover. New leaves are thin and fragile because they have to go through a process called hardening off. Once they harden off they are thicker and turn the normal green of mature leaves.
