Potted it up in 7:1 perlite, peat moss
And now it’s under the full spectrum led light I got from Home Depot (about 5” away from the light)
Hopefully it recovers shipping shock

This species can take quite a while to recover and you may see some pretty significant dieback while it's adjusting.Hopefully I haven’t used up my patience on my regia seedlings lol but I totally agree with you. I’ll leave it be and keep it under 14 hours of light (I’m not sure whether it was grown outdoor or indoor) so hopefully it will survive.
Shadowtski wrote:It looks like it was grown under adequate light.That’s a very good point. I’ll keep a close eye on the growth point. Will it start to dew up again on the older leaves or just on the new ones it will eventually grow?
Notice how Red the tentacles are colored up.
Like John said, be patient and don't panic at leaves crashing.
Keep your eyes on the new growth.
That says how the plant is doing.

Congrats on that.
I would bet that the old tentacles will Booger Up in about 1 week, especially if you dome or bag your pot to help the acclimatization process.
