It sounds like it may have transplant shock from the repotting. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/learn-how-to-avoid-and-repair-transplant-shock-in-plants.htm

Once the plant recovers, it should begin putting out new growth and blooms. Adding some phosphorus-rich fertilizer or bone to the soil will help encurage blooming as well.
