The plants may have been grown emersed (out of water) before you purchased them. In this case, some melting or leaf dieback should be expected.

For a nutrient deficiency you can check out this thread.

I dont know if it would be an Emerson grown issue but I’m far from an expert there.

My Emerson grown plants all seemed to go through the “ugly cycle” like this within the first couple weeks. By the 2 month mark they were 100% again. But I imagine different plants take different amounts of time to transition
