Some Orchid growers I know sprinkle cinnamon on cuts and rotten spots. They say it works quite well.

Can't hurt, might help.

Well, I dug it up. Re Daryl's mention of soil moisture, that aspect seemed ideal. It wasn't wet, wasn't dry - seemed just right. Mulch was only perhaps a half in thick. Roots were nice and white, nothing appeared rotted. The base is solid and woody. I had planted a dwarf Amsonia next to it at the same time last year and it is doing beautifully. I potted what is left of it up; removed all the dying material. We'll wait and see.
Gosh, I wanna order another one really bad.
