    Last fall I repotted my cephs into bigger pots. I was very careful and still one 'died' after. The others were fine. All growth died complety back to the root. Well I cut it back to soil line and just took care of it as if it were fine, I didn't pamper it or change the normal care routine. 5(!) months later, it put out new growth. I made a thread about it with pics:

    It now has several mature pitchers on it. So just keep caring for it as normal, you may get a nice surprise in a few months.

    I had this happen after my big ceph was shipped from the nursery....it died back to the ground....cephs hate changes in growing conditions, and I've seen this happen with other people as well. The best thing you can do is to just grow it as if nothing was wrong with it...more likely than not, it will send up a bunch of new growth in a month or so and be fine like nothing happened.

    I have since repotted my ceph once...not so much as a hiccup, probably because it was used to the conditions.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I wouldn't worry too much. As others have said, this is quite normal when doing a transplant. I had most of my mature pitchers kick the bucket after transplanting into a 6 inch pot, and it took a good 3 weeks for growth to resume. Don't fuss over it... that is the best advice I can give you
