I just received a young adult cephalotus planted in pure LFS in a small pot. Should I go ahead and repot it in a sand/peat/perlite mix in a larger pot, or should I wait? The soil it's in seems kind of old and compacted and the pot's tiny.

If the soil is compacted and old, I would repot now. Cephalotus aren't nearly as finicky as some make them out to be.

I'd wait till October if I were you. If Cephalotus are disturbed during their main growth cycle, they can sulk badly. The genus doesn't mind small pots when they are young. And yes - a photo would be very helpful in gauging the situation to determine your best course of action.
