Wilting can also be caused by the plant staying too wet; check the soil condition before watering excessively.

Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment.
