When you receive plants from a vendor, and plant them in your tank, they experience major changes. Many plants like swords are grown emersed (outside of the water) and under the conditions in your tank will refuse to keep their current leaves and grow new ones that are better adapted to life underwater. Give them a few weeks to establish, don't even start to throw fertilizer in there until they show some growth.

What are the plants? Are they crypts or swords like WP said? I concur with my learned brother WP that you plants maybe undergoing changes to submerged life. Or are you plants Stem plants, thenwhat sort of light do you have over the tank (colour ranges), what do you fertilise with and what are your water parameters?
