My dwarf orinoco was doing the same in early spring until it was feeling ok and imidiatelly grew nice and big leaves.

I didnt fertilize it, i just let it be. After its first healthy leaf i fertilized. Mine probably had this problem from the combination of the transplanting shock and the cold weather

They got worse when we got two weeks of rain and a bit cold weather...

Very cool, looks like a red version of Nam Dok Mai.
Where have you bought it?

From Thailand? I doubt it will arrive safely now with the covid slowing down all shipments. Good luck anyway.

How long does it take from Thailand to Portugal?
Here normally it takes around 3 weeks, most of the time spent in Italy passing from one warehouse to another, frozen in customs where luckily they rarely check things from Thailand.
