Sounds as though it has been overwatered and has rotted off. Check and see if the compost is too soggy, although if the stems are mushy it's probably already too late and it will need to be consigned to the compost heap. What a shame! This plant doesn't need to be too wet, despite the 'aquatica' part of it's name (the 'specific epithet' if you're into gardening terms!!).
