Will my Dwarf blueberries be okay?

Hi everyone!

It's finally warming up so I just potted my dwarf blueberry plant after having it in the nursery planter for around 2 weeks. I noticed some of the leaves browned/dried a bit at the tip and then I saw that the stem towards the bottom looks as if it's drying up (I don't recall if it was like that the day I received it).

Will it be okay? I'm relatively new to gardening. Any tips and pointers will be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much for reading!

It looks OK. The stems do turn brown as they age. Keep the soil moist and some dappled shade until it starts growing. Then it can get more light and fertilizer.

Give it some time, don't over water.
