Don't your pots have any drainage holes?

The trouble with transplanting when they are that wet is that the soil will not stay together and protect the roots during a transplant.

Yeah sounds like either your soil has poor drainage or you hve no drainage holes in the bottom of your pot.

Sounds like you need perilite in the soil, tip it if you have too and get a fan pointed at the soil, how big of a pot is it in? hopefully small and it will dry out quickly.

If it is going to die anyway, get a new pot ready with some decent lightly moistened soil. Tip the pot over in your hand and let all the water and perhaps a root run through your fingers. Carefully place the tiny baby in the pot that is all ready. Pray and good luck.

Good call dman...didn't even think about there being a lack of perlite.....
I always put about a 1/2 inch layer of perlite at the bottom of my pots and usually add perlite to my medium.

Hey bro; don't be too worried if she starts to look like she is dying at first. loosing some roots tends to shock them and they look a little weak for about a week, then they bounce back. Good Grow Mojo to ya

Yeah a pic would help, but it is probably just the shock of all that she been through. If yu want to load a pic, yu have to get it on yer computer then resize it to about 480x760 or something close. then when yu go to post reply, go down page to "manage attachments" click on that then click on "browse" and find your pic on your computer and click on it to load it. then click on "upload", when its done, click on post reply and it should load it up. good luck with it bro

What yu have there is a nutrient imbalance and/or ph imballance caused by the overwatering. She is in big time shock at the moment. If yu put her in good soil when yu transplanted, with all the proper nutes and ph ballanced, and very light on the water for a few days (moisen the soil then allow to dry) she should come back. Yu may end up loosing some leaves b4 its over tho. I am not a soil man, I do hydro, but I think she will pull through. do yu use organic or chem ferts for this grow? I ask because if yu can get some cal/mag solution and set it up for a foliar spray, then I would say to do that and spray a bit (not a lot) once a day for the next week and see if that helps... There are some really good stickies over on the "sick plants" thread. There are some really good charts that will help yu recognize any deficiencies as they begin, and what to do for them. Give them a read in yer spare time. Hang in there, I think she will pull through. good grow mojo
