How it had arrived:
It had arrived in evening so I had kept it inside with a tray of water with 1/2inch water depth.
Condition next morning:
On advice of the seller, I had trimmed off the blackened leaves. I kept it outside in bright light, still in the bowl of water. It got some direct light while I was attending my online classes, but then I removed it to a bright light location.
So, is this is a goner? What could have happened to turn it into this in less than 24hrs? How can I save it?
Frankly, it's hard to get and expensive here so I don't want to lose this. Badly.
Note: traveled just 2 days. Sent potted by seller in Peat moss (personally, I don't know how peat moss looks, so can't tell if it's really that). Got a filliformis and binata along with it and they are alright, no such deterioration yet.
Edit: I uprooted it once to check the roots. The lowest roots seem white. So that's a good sign, right??
Couldn't check the roots nearest to the plant since it was caked with peat moss and didn't want to break them by accident.
