I finally potted the two cuttings from the water bottle. Lots of roots. I lightly added potting soil and then some Nestle Pure Life water to moisten since that's what they've rooted in. I do notice that today, after transplanting yesterday, that the one cutting that leafed out started to show a little bit of drooping of the leaves. Is this normal? The potting soil is moist.

Is this part of the transpant shock process from being in water for about 3 weeks? Thanks.

You may want to increase the humidity until the plant settles down. Either put it in a humidity bin or put a plastic bag with a hole in the top on it until it perks up and starts growing.
If the soil is really wet that could lead to root rot problems.
