Unfortunately your photo did not come through.

I would try and bring that pH down to around 5.5 or 6. This could likely be the issue.

Another thing to consider will be the container size that it was transplanted to. This should only be an inch or so larger on all sides, as going any larger than that will lead to guaranteed overwatering. This can cause the symptoms that are described, here.

I suspect that the pH is too high, though.

Here are some articles that will help:
