I agree @LargeJavamoss that some of the roots may still be viable. If you haven't done so yet, I would remove from the pot and remove all the rotted roots and separate the dying strings from those with good roots. Treat the roots with some peroxide 2 parts and 4 parts water. Plant into new, well draining soil. Water every 10 to 14 days. Be sure to use Terra Cotta pot with drainage holes. Take the pods from the dying strings and lay them on top of your soil. Spray them till moist. If you can, cover with some sort of dome to keep them warm. With a dome, remove weekly for air exchange and check soil for moisture. If no dome, you will need to moisten lightly with a spray every 4 days. Don't wet them. Keep them in a warm, bright area. Patients is key with your propagation. I have found them to grow very slowly. I wish you the best with your efforts to save your plant.
This looks like rot. I would start chopping propping and taking leaves while still possible! Most likely overwatering.
Plants have different needs depending on the season of the year. You need to water more often in Summer than in Spring and Autumn, and less often in Winter than in Spring and Autumn. The rule of the thumb is: to water when the top 2" of the soil is dry.
I agree with @LittleSongbird - I would try to propagate as much as possible to save it. Since the parts closest to the soil are the parts that are dying off, you can probably save the ends. Burro’s Tail is very easy to propagate but you have to be patient! You could try to remove the dead parts of it to save the others together, but I wonder if the roots are salvagable on the parts that are still green/living. Burro’s Tail also holds water really well so you don’t have to water it as often as you think - I’m guessing you’re overwatering based on the stems looking a little mushy.
Thank you, @LargeJavamoss, for the best answer. It is appreciated.
