    Cephs are fussy when they are repotted, just let it be and it should start growing again.

    As long as the roots are healthy and were not damaged in the transfer process it should rebound.

    Trim the dead material and give them time to re-acclimate.

    You could always take a winter leaf or two to propagate as a backup as well.

    So long as you didn't manhandle it when repotting, it should be fine.

    Cephalotus often "sulk" for a while after being repotted and much topgrowth can die. This can be minimized by avoiding root damage during the process.
