haha.. feeling the need to be motherly!
she’s doing great, just let her love her environment, she doesn’t need anything..
find something else to do, studying up on things for growing so your prepared, or have a slight understanding so when you come here for help it’ll be a little easier for you.

ok, well you kinda want the soil to be moist but more on the dry side as in being just watered, as the weight of the soil could break away when taking the pot off..
the more of a root ball you have the easier it will be to transplant as the roots are holding everything together, less root ball more chance of roots breaking off roots..
no matter what happens during the transplant just get it done as carefully and quickly as possible and than water her..
in videos the small seedling didn’t have a big root ball but i know what i’m doing, but i wanted to show you as his stuff can happen and it’s ok..
than the big one with a root ball holding everything together..
wash your hands before and makes sure everything is clean.

SHE STARTING TO DROOP?!
it’s ok, probably soaked the soil instead of a watering? if that makes sense, though when it’s a day or two drier take a look at the root ball, she probably needs a transplant.. if you do it today remember you just watered and the weight of the soil could cause damage so you’ll have to support it with your hand, wash your hands!!..

Do you know if the light cycle has an effect on the transplant? Should be in dark or light afterwards

no your ok just get it finished and give her a watering or feeding and put her back in her environment.
i don’t think you broke the tap root, so she may become stressed, which means not much will happen for a week..
don’t worry as your probably freaking out, we all do when it happens, but now you’ve learned something about it!
she’ll should be fine..
