I ordered this plant from an online plant shop. She did not arrive in perfect condition like my other plants but she was damaged. The good thing is she seems to have snapped back. I watered her and left her alone. She has perked up some. The leaves that were damaged are still there, but she is surviving. I hope she continues to thrive.

Did not tolerate a propagation super well (split my plant in two), but is surviving nonetheless. Definitely enjoys drying out before the next watering
