It looks like I see feed pellets from a slow release fertilizer in the container. If compost was added with this, then the nutrient content of the soil is so high that it is burning the plant.

These are not heavy feeders and will do fine in low nutrient soil. I would recommend replanting into some fresh soil, either without nutrients, and mixed with compost, or with nutrients and not mixing with compost. Both together are a bit much.
