Default Leaves fell off!

I repotted my Phal a couple days back and now the leaves fell off

Is it dead? Should I toss it?

Can it be saves?

could be due to crown rot ...
if the roots are good, it may grow a basal keiki

yeah - this happened to me, and I just continued to care for it as I would if it had leaves, and I did get a basal keiki a couple months later

Hmmm... that looks bad. Following WhiteRabbit's advice might work but most likely the plant is goner. Get yourself new one and keep your fingers crossed for the old one.

it's likely there was water sitting in the crown ... try to avoid getting water in the crown, if you do, use the corner of a paper towel to soak it up. Or use a straw to blow water out.
