Sounds like your new pepper plants are having difficulty adjusting. There's not much you can do to hurry the process. Try feeding lightly with a liquid fertilizer (sometimes called a foliar feed) and water your plants deeply twice a week. I hope those roots establish quickly and your plants perk up soon!
