I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. We are transitioning to a new Q&A system and your question was unfortunately lost in the transition. I have discovered it now and hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

The problem could be some type of transplant shock. It may also be due to the soil staying too soggy wet or even to some chemical injury from a product sprayed on the foliage. Keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Also keep the plant in a bright area but out of direct sun and it should recover and be fine if the initial damage was not too severe.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
