Hi there. I have routed successfully to Celeste cuttings via water bottle method. One cutting did not put out leaves but tip is green. The other had put out one small leaf. After transplanting them to potting soil, the one cutting with the leaf began to slowly droop and wilt. After a week I just pulled it off. Both cuttings are still in soil and have green tips. Am I going to lose this cuttings, or is it that time of the year where they're going dormant like the trees? The soil is moist.

I keep them inside with moderate light. The one cutting in the clear plastic pot showed some white fuzz on the stem at the base of the soil. I've sprayed with hydrogen peroxide to keep it in check. I've attached a picture of them. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
