Myriophyllum guyana 'mini' Emersed Conversion

I was growing this plant well submerged and decided to change it out for something new some months ago. I grew the clippings emersed to keep a stock of it going. However, I am having trouble converting it back to submerged form. The bottoms or even middle of the stems keep melting and the very apex will float away. Anyone have experience with this?

I am having the same issue, browning and melting on the bottom and middle of the plant. I just trimmed some tops and replanted to see what would happen, but it's the first time I've seen dieback like this without the plant stunting from the top first.

No solutions unfortunately as it's my first time growing myriphyllum Guyana mini, but let me know if you figure something out!

Were you growing as emersed clippings? I have had this plant die off before submersed but the tops were able to regenerate. Maybe this plant is just sensitive to changes in water parameters.

I had it in a low-tech and moved it to a high-tech, so that could be the case. It's a strange pattern though, melting from the bottom while the tops aren't stunted at all.
