I've completely bare-rooted actively growing titanum seedlings and replanted them in fresh mix and never had a problem with a single one of them. I've even cut the leaf off of 200 of them with less than completely formed corms, dried them out slightly and shipped them overseas and, to my knowledge, they all survived.

I've heard that young AT don't like their roots disturbed, however I don't know if that is true or not. If you were poking through the pots looking to see if you had one or two tubers, you may have done some root damage.
How warm is your greenhouse?
They may just be going dormant. There's a common misconception that they go dormant for the winter and many of them do however, they really go dormant when the correct time for that particular plant is reached and I've had them stay up for as long as 18 months. All of mine go dormant this time of the year and come back up about the middle of June. Look at the petiole for vertical wrinkling. As the leaf begins to die back it not only begins to yellow but the petiole will start to look like it's drying out.You can gently slip them out of the pot and look at the roots or the corm. It is correct that they appreciate good water but that doesn't mean sopping wet either. I find them actually easier to grow if kept just slightly drier. It's always easier to recover from too little water than it is to recover from too much.

*sigh* Some of the leaves on my brand new titans are starting to turn yellow. They have been in full shade and Ive kept the soil wet. They look like they've been over watered but I thought they liked water. It has been very windy too and these plants were soft greenhouse plants. Could that be the problem? Im very disappointed here, I just dont get it.
