Dying Madagascar Jasmine

Guys desperately need an advice
Repotted this Madagascar #jasmine on June 20
After purchasing it looked well but there was fabric looking mesh on its roots so I freed them and potted with new trellis and soil mix.
Watering according Greg schedule and always checking moisture level with moisture meter.

Is it just transplant shock? Or my Jasmine buddy says bye bye..
2ft to light, indirect
7” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 year ago
I'm so sorry to hear that. What do you think about going to a plant nursery and get it checked?
It could be transplant shock, especially since you repotted and changed the trellis. It probably feels majorly disrupted, but hopefully it’ll recover with time! I would just keep up the good care, and wait it out to see if it improves πŸͺ΄πŸ’š
A plant’s roots are sooooo super teeny that no matter how careful you are while repotting, they’ll be damaged. Your plant will spend a few weeks after repotting getting those roots reestablished in the new soil, so it may look like it’s not doing so good. This is especially true if removing the mesh was pretty invasive.

Fewer roots = less water the plant can slurp up = a thirsty looking plant.

It’s also normal for a few leaves to drop while the plant focuses on growing new roots. Nothing to worry about, and it should be back groovin’ and growin’ in another week or so!
Thank you very much for answers and support! Crossing my fingers and continue to taking care of this fella πŸ™πŸ» @Kiersten @saatwood @Jazeeoou
How is your plant doing?
