What does root rot look like?

12 years ago

Does anyone have any pictures I couldn't find examples anywhere. I am wondering if the aloe I brought home a few weeks ago has root rot. It was in a sopping wet pot with black muck and I took it out, let it dry for a few days, and it is now sitting in (tested and sifted) oil dry. I have not watered it yet.

I don't have a picture right now but most of the roots looked kind of like mini tree bark on their surfaces. I am a total novice and have to say I have not yet seen what the roots of a succulent look like.

If it IS root rot where would I chop the roots off, just above where they grow out of the plant? And then just let it hang out for a while until the roots start? Thanks
