Is this a transplant? It looks like a plant that is planted WAAAY too deep and is chlorotic. Are those two leaves lying on the soil or are they attached to a stem that is buried?

From the picture it appears that the plant is suffering from watering too often as shown by the yellowing curling leaves and possibly being in a drafty place. When it was transplanted how deep did you plant the root ball.

5 inches seems way too deep. All that should be buried is the roots, not the stem

It MIGHT be possible. Lay the little piece on a paper towel for a couple of days. Then place the piece onto damp soil so as the piece is about 1/2 covered and see what happens.

On the root part take it out of the soil and rinse away all soil and repot with fresh damp soil. There might still be a little life left in it. Keep the soil damp, NOT WET.

If I put it on full sunlight will the soil get dry and about the little stem should the paper towel be dry or wet and how many days to wait for what to happen ?
