    AH MY EYES!

    That mix needs some other stuff in it. Use orchid bark, perlite, or both, where peat is 50% or less of the mix.

    Can I ask why on earth there's green plastic tied around the plant??

    Also, contrary to what others say, the plant is dehydrated as hell. That's why it looks leathery and the leaves are curled inward toward the midrib laterally. Either you have watering all wrong, or the roots are dead, in which case you'll shortly have a dead plant.

    This plant just got here 3 days ago. Leaves were dryish and curling right out of the box. I been watering it as I feel it drying. Not sure what else to do for it.

    Not lookin' good. Repot it in LFS, perlite, & orchid bark. Good light wouldn't hurt either.

    Yeah, you definitely need to add something else to that mix. Try some orchid bark, perlite, rocks, packing peanuts, anything. I agree that even though you've only had it three days it could be slow responding because of shock (in addition to the other problems), but giving it a good airy mix will allow for better root development and establishment. The plant does look really dry and it may not have been ready to be put into a sopping wet mix (more shock).

    What are the green lines tied to the plant?
