I have a spring cactus. Everyday a leaf falls off. It was given to me in a small container, and I was told to transplant it to a bigger pot, which I did. I watered it after transplanting. It has been almost 2 weeks The soil is still a bit damp. What am I doing wrong ?

Your Easter Cactus may be suffering from root rot.
When repotting your plant it's important not to use to large of a container. Easter Cactus actually prefer to be a bit root bound.
I would actually recommend you lift the plant from the wet soil and pot. If the roots are black or soft, trim them and repot into a smaller pot with fresh soil.
Do not water until the soil dries slightly.
