The lower part of the stem is shriveled and that means the roots have died and are no longer functioning. I'm afraid it cannot be saved.

I agree It is beyond saving..just get a new cutting. Even if you try to cut off the lower rotted portion, there is just not enough energy left to sustain it.

Learn from this cutting experience, don't feel bad, I had to learn for three years with several attempts how to make my Plumies thrive here.
