My plants bases are rotting! HELP

My mini clovers are fine, the swards are fine, and 2 needle bushy plants are growing roots and doing fine.
BUT EVERYTHING else in my tank when I pulled them up have black stinky rotted bases!!!! They had those metal rings on them from the suppliers. Was I supposed to take those off? Could it be that I buried them too deep?
I cut off the dead bases, reburied them a little shallower to see what happens.

Remove the lead weights and space the plants out individually.
