drooping leaves

I got this plant after dividing. It droops and has brown and yellowing stems. Leaves are dull and no flowers. I water by touching soil at least one time a month.

I'm not sure of the type of plant you are having issues with.
If the plant was newly divided, it is likely quite stressed.
Is this an indoor potted plant or outdoors in a garden bed?
Either situation, watering is very important.
Potted plants should have good quality potting soil with a adequate drainage hole.
Water requirements will vary according to the plant type.
An outdoor planting will need water daily for the first 2 weeks, then you can back off on the water.
Yellowing leaves generally indicate a watering issue, to much or to little.
Once a month is likely to little unless the plant is a cactus or succulent.
