Hi! I'm new to plants and I was looking at my possibly dying snake plant and found this root in the plant (possibly from me pulling out the leaf with a rotting root). I see a little nub growing from the root.

Is there a way for me to plant this or grow the nub?

Do I just let it sit in the soil?

I've had a few different snake plants. I think you can stick it back in the pot, or a new pot, and it will grow. Could be slow, be patient.
Plant it and they will come.

I have a few that I've rescued like that & I just gently tuck them back in the dirt, cover light, water on your normal schedule for it & leave them be. They're tough plants and it'll grow just fine. Good luck!

Yes your plant is tough but they can't take wet soil. It will rot. Keep in bright sun and leave it dry out completely before watering again. They can go months with out water. Too much water is the biggest killer of these plants. In the winter months, I water mine about once a month. Summer outside in the heat, I water ever other day.
