Default New masdevallia decumana and questions

Hello,
I got this masdevallia from Ecuagenera 10 days ago, it came barerooted and leaves were somewhat squished into the net bag.
After 10 days it is still alive, but it seems that leaves are not straightened up completely. Do you think it looks ok?
Also what might be those holes on the leaves, insect damage? Is it a concern?





Thanks a lot.

It's fine.

The curled leaves will never straighten out fully. That's how they developed, and that's how they'll be for the duration of the leaf's lifespan.

Thanks!
I didn't know that they can grow curled and thought it was a physical damage due to transportation.
So, the holes are nothing to worry about too?
