I repotted my calathea ornata in a bigger pot yesterday and in the process i did some root pruning too. After this, i saw that edges of some of the leaves have curled up and do not seem to be doing okay. Please see pic attached. Have i done something wrong? What can i do to revive the plant? Please help :(

When you repot, never put the plant deeper than it was in the soil before. The only exception are tomatoes. Whenever I have to re do my marantha patches, I usually only keep the tubers, I usually lose the leaves anyway, so I cut them off an leave just a stub of the stem so I know where I planted them. They usually put out new leaves in a short while. I usuallly wait until the fall to do this since that is when my arrowroot tops die down anyway.
