Few pups that I planted.............I had to decapitated it..............and their apparence is exactly the same of your plant.................

It´s better to start to remove the rotten after remove the brown parts...............

Then the plant emerges.................

Do not force it...............just remove the dead parts..............with a sharp blade..............

Start with the outer material...............

My experience with rot and cali golds, cut down until you see green and no brownish-grey mush if its in the middle leaf chances are its affected the corm already. Good luck!
