Is my catesetum seedling OK?

Hi, I have this seedling Monnierara Millenium Magic 'Witchcraft' which I repotted it in sh.
Look at the picture before and after.
Its bottom leaves starts yellowing?
Does seedling goes into dormancy too?
The Reservoir left abit of water, I dare not add anymore.

When I repotted it, its root were in, now seemed like roots are moving as you can see in pictures.
Please please advise, I don't want to kill this precious.

Looks to me like those roots are still growing and the leaves that remain look healthy. Yes, a seedling may lose its leaves and go dormant, but you can also allow a small amount of water to prevent a "hard" dormancy. No fertilizer during this period. The bulb looks firm and plump, so as long as it is not shriveling, the plant should be fine.

Oh thank you thank you so much Fishmom for replying, I was so worried, I thought dormancy won't happen in seedling.
