Saving rescued aloe vera

While "picking" an an abandoned hoarder's  house, I found this aloe Vera in a window. House has been abandoned for 2yrs. I'd like to save it since it survived the neglect, but not sure how to proceed. Should I cut it off at green and re-pot?

  • Easiest way is to remove it from the pot, sort out the live growth with roots, discard the obviously dead shoots/roots and  pot up in 50/50 JI 2 or 3 and mpc and give it a water.

    They are surprisingly resilient plantsimage

  • I tried adding a photo but it looks like it didn't take.  I'll try again.

    Make the photo smaller - about 1000 pixels wide will do.
