Hello I got this congo rojo from nursery two weeks back and repotted it into a planter I got from Ikea. Its a self watering planter so it does not have drainage holes. I am trying to understand if this plant is healthy or not. one of the leaf that is coming out does not look healthy or seems to be dying.

Can some give me any tips?

If your humidity is very low you may want to spritz several times a week, but for the first few weeks just wait.

 If I am seeing your photo correctly, that is just a sheath that pulls back opposite of the leafstalk.  I grow a giant variety where my greywater runs out of the house and it gets those.
They dry and shrivel over a week or so.  as long as your leaves open up nicely on the opposite side, your all good.
