Default P. sumatrana leaf habit?

Is it normal for the ends of P. sumatrana leaves to appear almost droopy? I received a seedling of clear span about 100mm the other day and the leaf ends were kinda droopy. I've had it in a heated propagating tray at around 23oC - 28oC and about 80% RH and it still looks kinda droopy - is that normal? It was sent as a bare root seedling in
Spaghnum and I've potted it in 100% spaghnum

As long as the leaves don't crinkle when bent its probably normal.

They are probably a bit droopy from dehydration. This should improve gradually if the plant and roots are healthy. Just keep an eye on it.
