Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I have never encountered a plant by that name. Perhaps, you meant Cordyline?

It won't be possible to save the rotten bottom. You may, actually, have better luck saving the top. You will still have to fight an infection if it roots, but it gives you the chance to save the plant.
