Hostas are pretty resilient, just keep it good and moist, and hopefully it is in a shady spot and it will be great.

What do you think?

    The plant is suffering from transplant shock and should come out of it if the weather cooperates and if you make sure it has adequate water. Hostas like shade so hopefully that is where you moved it to.

    Transplant shock occurs anytime the roots are damaged (which they always are to some extent when you move them) The plant basically shuts down for a bit. If severe, you may even see some browning of the leaves.

    Hopefully the root damage is not to bad.

    Three words : Water, water and water.

    If you give it plenty of water it should recover just fine. They wilt in response to the move, new soil, you have disrupted their roots, and now they have a different amount of sun to deal with. Let it get used to its new home and it should be just fine.
