Transplanting Screwup

I have this indoor evergreen plant (I don't know its name) that was the center plant in this picture
http://www.brandylion.com/images/indoor_plants.jpg
This pic was taken a few years ago when it was in pretty bad shape. Now it's about double that size and relatively healthy but became root bound in its pot. Today I transplanted it into its new, larger pot and I screwed up and half of the root ball fell off. I should have been more careful. Anyway, now that it is in a much larger pot with only half a root ball, is there anything I should do to make sure this plant doesn't go into shock and die on me? It looks fine now but I just did the botched transplant operation a few hours ago.

Seems to me that if part of the rootball just fell off, it wasn't a very important part of the root. But as for transplant shock, a feeding of Vitamin B should help.

Hi, The plant is Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla) and can be grown from cuttings so the loss of some of the root ball should be tolerated. http://www.floridata.com/ref/a/arau_het.cfm has a lot of info on maintaining this plant and Google can bring lots more on care as a house plant. HTH -_- how
no NEWS is good

Thanks a lot for that website; it was very informative. Unfortunately, mother nature has been a real b*tch this spring here in Chicago and we're getting low temps below 40 (including a frost in the suburbs on the frost free date of May 15!). It was good to know that that plant can't deal with sub 40 temps so I had to lug that 100+ pound planter inside. (-:
