Heidi @ Heidi Ho-rticulture on Mar 25, 2017Not to worry, they wilt a bit and look miserable for a few weeks. Just make sure they are situated close to a window and you keep them moist. The roots will have to rebound. Remove some of the older leaves, to balance out the roots to leaf ratio. The leaves closest to the centre of the plant bear the newer leaves from the stalk. Remove the older, outer leaves only. After two weeks or so, fertilize with a houseplant fertilizer. I use one that has 10-15-10 fertilizer ratio. Good luck!
