Top of my 2 yr old Aloe has completely removed itself from the root.
Mother in law left it in a basin of water while i was abroad, as it looked like it needed a watering!!!!

Any hope of recovery? It literally has no growth above soil, looks like it rotted and just separated.

Its a succulent and doesn't like a lot of water as it retains water in its leaves. Your MIL has basically drowned it and its rotted.

2 years I had it. Annoying beyond words.

Now for a new plant to fill the spot.
