You can mulch over the top of the soil now that you've replanted them. Set them in moderate light and water when the top of the soil begins to dry out. More houseplants are killed by overwatering than anything else so water carefully. Stick your finger down into the soil to check for soil moisture. If it is still moist one inch beneath the soil surface you won't need to water for another few days; if it is dry, it's time to water. Best wishes with your new plants.
