What's going on with this thing? I've had it for 2 years no problem and every time this happens it perks up quickly. However, this time it hasn't perked up and it's been 5 hours since I watered it. it can't be root rot cause not enough time has gone by. I did however repot this thing 2 days ago. [Linked Image]

The water just leaks out from underneath. It was in a pot like this before with no issue. Somebody on another forum did mention a virus and if that's the case I might as well get a new plant. I checked the roots and they look healthy.

Now that you mention it I did mess with the roots quite a bit to remove the old dirt. Is there anything else that can be done to improve survival chances. i hope it doesn't lose half it's leaves either.

I would just leave it alone for a few days don't water unless it's necessary. Give it time to "regroup" :wink:

Well I hope the survival rate is high(at least greater than a tree with transplant shock). I also hope it doesn't look terrible after this.
