False Aralia

False Aralia

What the heck is going on with my False Aralias? I bought this plant when it was about 7-8"s tall at a Home Depot early last summer. It sat in a sunny window in a slightly bigger pot than what it was bought in all year except on the coldest nights of winter since our windows are old and tend to draft in small areas. I watered this thing every Monday and it shot up.... I repotted (in the same type soil) in a new bigger, cleaned terra cotta pot (the old pot was some sort of glazed fancy smooth white pottery) about a month or two ago............. still continued to water it every Monday but now it occupies a spot on the floor in the same window, getting just as much sun. I notced yesterday that the leaves looked "sad". They were droopy... I picked it up to water it today (I got off a few days from my normal routine) and when I touched it I realized the leaves were not just "sad" they were dead. Not all of them. The leaves at the top of the plant are still healthy and waxy and the main trunk of the plant seems fine, no change in texture or appearance aside from the diameter being slightly bigger... but all the lower leaves have died, and not just a normal "lower leaves because the plant it taller" kind of dead.... The plant is about a foot and four inches and there are only healthy stems and leaves at the top four inches of the plant, and even new growth at the top that looks fine. There are three sprouts coming out of the dirt that are about 6 inches tall and a few of those have dead parts on the upper areas. The plant turned a dark purple in spring and it now a dark green.......... Did I kill the plant somehow? I haven't done anything out of ordinary? Is terra cota cursed? Is this a normal late spring/early summer thing for these plants?
