    It seems like you should give it some time to acclimate to it's new environment and settle in before expecting to see new growth. I've noticed that when I first get new plants, it can take a little while before any real movement is apparent. I would say be patient unless you're seeing serious signs of decline.

    Give it a few more days for new growth to appear.

    Almost all CPs tend to go into suspended animation when they arrive. After awhile, they adjust to their new environment and grow vigorously.

    I had a Nepenthes Truncata that arrived in January and didn't grow at all (literally) until about April. It then shot out a few deformed leaves and is now sending up a proper leaf that's bigger than ever.

    My P. moctezumae took a while to get acclimated and still is in the process...lost its first flower but sent up a really healthy looking one this past week. It seemed to take a bit longer for them than the other CPs I got at the same time.

    Whatever you do don't buy a Ficus Benjamina! For most people they lose ALL their leaves when you bring them home! LOL! Change of environment does it. They recover just fine.
