|The indoor air may be too dry. Umbrella plant grows naturally in boggy areas so be sure to keep the soil moist. Try misting the plant every morning to increase humidity in the air and make sure it is not sitting in a cold draft from an air conditioner. Since you've recently repotted it, it may be going through an adjustment period. As soon as the roots become established the plant should perk up and grow new leaves. Hope it's soon!
