Hello! I recently received a mega Monstera clipping from a friend. The clipping came from a huge mature plant with 2ft diameter leaves. The clipping had multiple roots and some roots came directly from the pot, not just arial roots. The clipping has been planted in soil for about 3 weeks. The temp inside is a steady range of 70F to 75F and misted in the morning to regulate humidity. Doing my best to replicate its previous conditions. Over the past 3 weeks, the leaves have started curling and turning yellow and veiny. Looking a bit sad compared to its original luster. I'm not sure if the plant is just in shock from transplanting or the watering isn't right. I'm making sure not to overwater or underwater. Attached are pictures. Any and all guidance or input will be greatly appreciated as I want to keep this beast going! Thank you!

Welcome!

I suspect it just doesn't have enough roots to support the top.

Did you bury some of the air roots? I hope not...
