Hard for me to say without seeing, but I normally give transplants a serious haircut (since their roots got one already) to try to reduce stress. How much above-ground branching is there for these damaged/lost roots to support? What you want is for rooting to happen first and foremost–so no fertilizer or anything; keep it watered (not drowned); and again, I would probably do a serious cutback of the topgrowth. Again, just hard to recommend without seeing the plant first…any jpg possible?
