    I personally would just clip off the dead leaves there and leave the stems as-is. I think you could bury them if you want to, but I'm not completely sure about that.

    I've become iffy on what to do in this case. While burying stems can make the plant produce basals or adventitious roots, both good things, I have also had several plants recently that decided stems under the soil mean time to rot right in the middle (though this I partially attribute to a terrible quality sphagnum I acquired some time back). I think safest bet is leave them above soil unless you see adventitious roots forming.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    There are no adventurous roots, so I'll put it above the soil. I'll order some decent sphagnum soon. Thanks.
