Hi there; I have a monstera plant rooted in water, it started off as a cutting. It has been growing well inside my house in a glass vase for many months but I have just moved it into a larger new vase and ever since it has been sad, one of the stems has died and the other is now drooping and curling. What do I do! It gets medium indirect light for a few hours a day. Does it need more or less light or water?

It's hard to know what has caused its recent demise. Moving it to a larger container should not matter. I suggest that you cut the stem just about where it hits the top rim of the pot and try to re-root the top section in water. It would probably benefit from more light. "Medium indirect light for a few hours" may not be adequate.
