I had assumed it was INSIDE the drafty window !
Outdoors in Illinois in January, it wouldn't droop, it'd be stiff as a
board 'till march!
Actually, Joel, it's likely you shocked it in the transplanting.  If it's
possible, Tent the plant in clear plastic, don't water anymore, and keep
it at near 100% relative humidity for a couple of weeks.  Warm and humid
are the secrets for getting it past the shock, and heated homes are dryer
than the desert.
