If the stem becomes damaged to the point that vascular tissue is disconnected from the apical portion of the plant, I could see the lower portion dying off. Maybe you damaged the stem in some way while planting it. The stems in the picture look fine to me.

The joints turning black and breaking, but many are still growing. Does it also happen due acclimation in new tank?

OH the "joints" are where you cut the plant previously. When you trim the stem, it will die off down to the closest leaf node where it sent growth. Yes, this is normal.

Growing well, but i feel these are not HRA, coz im using really high lighting, my blyxa are turning orange red, but rotala look more orange/pink.
