Some plants really don't like to be transplanted. They 'stall' and basically sit there and sulk rather than growing away.
It can be for any number of reasons, poor root development, temperature shock etc. Last year this happened with my chillies, after transplanting to their final pots they just sat there and sulked, they didn't die, they just didn't develop. I put this down to my overwatering which basically stunted the roots.
