Kalanchoe/Paddle Plant-Need advice Please

I have a Kalanchoe Paddle Plant called 'Fantastic'. I've only had it since Christmas. Beautiful plant w/3 individual plants in one container. Watered only when totally dry and kept on the dry side. However the other day...I found one stem on the floor that has apparently rotted off??? Hmmm

question"..I cut off the mush of the dropped stem. Can I root this fairly easy after it calluses over? I would like to put it back in the pot with the other two very healthy stems (plants)....I pulled up on the plant that was remaining from the stem breakage, and saw healthy roots. Who knows, ....I dont see any reason why I couldn't replant back into original pot. Your thoughts??

I would like to put it back in the pot with the other two very healthy stems (plants)....

==>>> i would not put ... a potentially diseased plant.. back into a pot with healthy plants ...

root it elsewhere ... and if successful ... then repot the whole for summer ...

Thank you Ken, for the advice and links. I potted up 3 lrg leaves, and potted the stem that broke we will see what happens. Sounds like I have to wait 3wks! :(
