I bought it in March and it was doing great but it's been about a month that it's been wilting at its growth has slowed down. May be underwatering?

Can you carefully pull the plant out of the pot and check the situation with the roots? Pot-bound?

I repotted it a few weeks ago actually. At the time it had started to wilt. Then it didn't look particularly pot bound but its soil was totally dry one week after being watered.

Rez - I just divided some pups off of my plant a couple of weeks ago and repotted it. It's just started perking up in the last couple of days. I would keep it out of direct sun until you see an improvement. I'm assuming you added some fertilizer when you repotted it? They are food and water lovers.
