Only 2-3 Stems are left, can I save it? If yes then how?

I am noticing signs of fungal infection. This is a product of overwatering, or too much humidity.
It may be possible to save this, but it is going to take vigilant fungicide use. Make sure to water with a fungicide as necessary, and spray with a fungicide to kill what is on the leaves.
I would recommend alternating fresh water and fungicide water mix. Only water once the soil is almost completely dry to the bottom. These plants are, somewhat, drought tolerant and prefer dry soils over wet soils. The best will be letting the soil dry to slightly moist down to about 3 inches, but a little less or more is fine.
