I'm sorry to hear it broke. In the short term, your leaves have no roots to feed them or provide water. As a result they die. Remove most of the leaves to reduce the demand for water. Change the water when it begins to get cloudy. Check out this tutorial (with pictures) on how to root plants in water. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/gardens-gardening/your-garden/help-for-the-home-gardener/advice-tips-resources/visual-guides/rooting-cuttings-in-water.aspx
