I am wondering if my plant looks okay. A week ago i saw that the leaves were curling inward and I read that this might mean the medium is waterlogged. I very carefully removed some of the soaked medium and the leaves seem to have started to recover but i am worried and it looks like the newest soon to be leaf isn't the healthiest. Also i noticed when repotting that the roots are extremely numerous and mostly at the bottom (kind of like a brush) at the bottom. The medium is perlite and sphagnum and it gets about 12 hours of fluorescent bulb light a day. 60-80 humidity and a temp drop at night from 22 C ish to 14 C at night. Thanks for any help!
