It hasn't made any growth progress for a few months, so I wondered what was wrong. I thought that it was because of wrong media and poor drainage (I had it in 60%/40% peat and perlite). I took it out of the dirt, and everything that was below the soil was brown and dead. I cut off all the dead things, made some vertical slits at the bottom of the stem, and stuck the thing in distilled water, hoping it would root. Any other suggestions? I don't have any rooting powder or anything.
