My elephant bush was dropping leaves and looking saggy and park of the stems look mushy (see pic). So I removed it from pot in case it was being over watered to let it dry out. That's my guess but would like some advice as to what you guys think is going on.

I think it would do better in soil during the recovery.

I think it was overwatered and the root system was rotted out.
