Did any of the roots tear when you pulled it from the pot?

If you have already watered it let it set for a while. If conditions worsen let us know. Also head on over to wal-mart and get some superthrive. It aids in damaged and tranplanted plants. It is not a fert. only a supplement. Use as directed.
When you change a plant into a different pot it's always a good idea to trim a few leaves off, because transplanting often results in damaged root hairs. Which means the plant can't uptake water as effeciently as it used to. By removing some leaves, you reduce the amount of plant that water must get to, which means no dead leaves and the ones that remain on the plant stay healthy.
hmmmmmmmm, I would have to politely disagree with trimming live leaves, at anytime. Cutting the leaves can only further srtess/shock the plant, IMHO.
Honestly, I very very seldom ever see any significant sign of "shock" from transplanting. If done at the right time, carefully and properly, they respond almost immeadiatly.
