Re: Is this common after severe shock?
What is happening underneath the soil will show on top. So if you don't have enough roots to feed the top (leaves) your leaves will be distorted or browned. But when the roots started to grow and spread out then the leaves will start to grow normally.
That's why I repeat a newly transplanted plant because of the roots might have been damaged, the leaves will wilt and possibly die. And that's why one has to protect the plants from direct sunshine at least for a few days.
