I found preety big healthy branch of aloe plant(cut, without roots) on the street. Passed nearly a month since i put it in a glass of watter and I just saw that already has rooten, and has few small fat roots.

What should I do next? How much should I wait before putting it in pot?

You can plant it now, use well draining soil in a container with drainage holes, provide good light and warmth. Not too big a container though, you can repot later on as it grows bigger, let it thrive first. Have fun!

The fat roots are called air roots. They are produced to seek out soil.
Just put it in some lighty damp soil and dont water it till soil dries out.
Get it out of the water. It will rot !
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Thank you very much!!! I'll put in pot right away. And will inform you about the progress :)

For other users I'm uploading an image from my aloe plant roots.
