I see no problem with the repot or the container the plant ended up in. The soil is not drying out fast enough because the plant is not getting enough light, I'm guessing. It should be right in front of your sunniest unobstructed southerly facing window, and "see" the sun for hours a day year round. Strong light will work in synergy with the clay pot to dry out the soil in a timely manner. It will also be greatly beneficial to the continued long term health of the plant. Close attention to light will make a huge difference in late fall and winter when light is always limiting indoors, especially.
