For a few months my chinese evergreen's leaves have died one by one and I ruled out root rot because if anything I under watered it, however today I finally took out the remaining bits left in the soil. Is there anyway to revive it? I took smaller cuttings a while back form this plant that have already rooted in water but nothing like this chunk. Is there any hope?

Your Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema commutatum) may have suffered from too little moisture. Those roots appear quite dry to my eyes and with such a small root system remaining, I'd advise potting them into a very small pot that has good drainage. Use a porous potting medium and water thoroughly, until water exits the drain holes. Place in a bright location without direct sun and water again when the top inch or two of soil feels dry when you stick a finger down into the soil.
