HI Amy,
    Would love to help, but I do not know to what conditions you moved the
plants into, and from what. What were the conditions they left? Humidity,
temps (hi/lo) light levels, artificial light/natural light?
    What conditions have you moved them into? A terrarium, windowsill, top
of the fridge? And of course, humidity, temps, light levels, 'day' length
    What is your tap water or what ever you are using now to water them
    What species are we talking about also? This helps a lot actually.
    Send the answers here and we will all chime in, right folks???
    Best wishes
