Thanks so much for your quick replies! I like this community already :)

@Diana_K: I think you're right about the variety! looks exactly like it, though you're right that the variegations are white rather than gold. I've made three cuttings as per your instructions, in case I can't save the main plant. May be difficult to see from the pictures but there should be as much stem in the water as you said. Do these pictures look okay?
For a deep soak/drain, should I keep it in the soil? Just fill the entire pot with water and drain?

@growin: I tried to get a better look at the stem bases, and I attached a picture here. I can certainly see roots at the top. This is likely my fault from when the plant was knocked over. I've tried to label how many stems there are but am probably missing some. There are quite a few. I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of what look like very new sprouts, as well, so maybe the plant can be saved? As you can see though, there isn't enough room to add any more soil. Should I completely remove the plant and soak it in water? And then completely re-pot it? If so, should I get new soil?

Thank you again for your help! It is greatly appreciated :)
