Myriophyllum mattogrossense

I have tried propagating these by just cutting the plant in half and replanting the top. However, the lower half doesn't seem to do that well afterwards and starts to turn yellow or light brown. Also, it never resumes growth where I've cut it, only some sideshoots continue growing.

Have i killed the plant by cutting it in half? Or what's wrong?

a stem plant cannot continue growing where it is cut and will send out side shoots...this is normal. how long are the cut segments?
