Notice the upper portion with green leaves and the lower portion with the dead leaves
This is a portion of the stem with green leaves still intact. It is now producing two offshoots (the reddish large one on the right and a small one to the left).
Somehow cutting at the area which no longer has fresh green leaves kills off the main stem.
This one has turned completely brown.
This one is drying up from the cut end.
The growing tips which were cut off.
This is doing well, leaves are still firm.
This one is going, going...the leaves have gone limp.
