Plant seems alright from the top but the stem looks a bit brown at the bottom. Couldn't get a clear shot of it even with my best efforts. Leaves are starting to point downwards a bit. Is the plant doing alright? Do I have to do any first-aid? (It was outdoors for two days or so, watered in the morning yesterday and medium went completely dry afternoon. Will that kill the plant?)
I know pings suffer from "dying heart disease" or something like that but, I cant really see it in your pic so I cant say anything about that. My pings leaves sometimes droop down when it goes into shock but recovers soon later. I hope you can find your answer and my best regards for your plants safety
It looks fine to me, the roots are healthy and the leafs are in great shape. without support (like your ping is elevated), the Ping would usually have the lower leaf grow toward the 'ground' for more support. Willy

I feel like a nervous parent... one root seems to have dried off and some leaves look a little damaged for no reason. It still looks healthy I hope? Also, how do you make pings grow bigger a little faster?

cat liter 50% with sometime 'akadama '(bonzaï substrate ) for the water retention river sand 12.5%.for the capillarity and the substrate alleviation pouzzolane( volcanic rock) 12.5% for the aeration calcareous sand 12.5% Reinforcement of the limestone concept vermiculite , perlite 12.5% for the Substrate alleviation
