Maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago, I noticed the leaves of the gollum plant I have started falling off at the slightest touch (I only touched it once I notice them falling off themselves) - A few days after I noticed the ends (closest to the stem) of the leaves were rotting, turning a weird shiny, silvery colour
Shortly after, the stem also started to rot & up until today, I've pulled off 3 different parts of the stem of this particular section of the plant

Someone on another forum mentioned this might be happening because of the stress caused when I separated the plant (they were 2 different plants, planted together) but didn't offer any solutions :/
Is there a way to stop it from rotting (as this is also happening to the other half of the plant) or any other alternative explanations? as I'd really like to save this plant and haven't had much luck when asking around different forums

Your raised the water volume in the roots when you did a division on you succulents. That added too much water in the root zone and they are bursting at the joints because of added water. All you can do at this point, is take it out of the decor container and allow the nursery pot to air out, and let the soil dry well. Set up an oscillating fan in the room to help to dry the soil a little faster..
