L. aromatica seems to one of the stems thats picky about how its planted. Try using tweezers and dont crush the stem. Trim it close as possible to an internode. I suspect rotting stem undergravel promotes more rotting. If the stem produces aerial roots you definately shouldnt have a problem.

I think i found the culprit. My heater was in the same corner as the aromatica and i think the warm water was just settling at the bottom because my macandra grew up so much the flow of the water was being diverted. So i moved the heater and we'll see!
