China doll houseplant

Your article states not to repot; however, I did not know this until AFTER I repotted. Now my plant is nothing more than several tall stems. It does have some new growth sprouts but some of those are turning brown and dying. I received this plant at my Mother's funeral from a dear friend. Please, please, please HELP me save this plant!! I cannot lose it, as it means so much to me! Sincerely, Susan

Make sure the soil is not soggy and that the pot has good drainage.
Trim the plant back by half and follow the care information in the link below.
You will need to wait and see if the plant can recover.
Here are some articles with more information.
