Hi! I recently adopted a newly repotted & watered Monstera from a local nursery. I noticed 2 of its mature leaves were extremely curled in. I’ve had it for 3 weeks and have watered it once. My plant is facing the SW of my apartment which has the best lighting. The leaves have not uncurled and it has the appropriate amount of water and lighting.

What else could it be?

Its hard to say for sure but If conditions such as light or watering are off just a little, then it may take a some time for symptoms to show up. If you recently transplanted into a larger pot adding alot of new soil, then the increase of water volume in the root zone can keep the plants roots too wet reducing the oxygen. If that's the case you should allow for the soil to dry a little more between waterings. If you allow the soil to dry too much and don't allow for the water to drain out of the bottom of the pot then you are not getting enough water in the root zone. Always allow for a little drainage out to come out of the bottom to ensure that the whole container is watered well during the watering.
