The bottom did grow new leaves through often it would branch off like others said.
Though I think that depends on where you cut them at also may make a difference. Example- when I cut them closer to the top I didn't see much of the 'branching out" as I did when I cut them lower in the tank.
I don't how it normally happens with stem plants or that plant that was just my experience.
I also didn't have that hard of a time getting them to stay down in the substrate which at the time was Eco-complete. Some times I found it easier to plant two stems at a time. I would also make a. J - shape out of the stem and shove them down as far as I could and them slowly pull my finger out while pushing the gravel back in.the hole where my finger was. It seem to help keep the plant down.
