Saving succulent from root rot?
My gasteraloe had some discoloration around her base; I took her out of her pot, cleaned off her roots as best I could, and cut off places (a couple roots and smaller outer leaves) that looked a little funky. I'm not sure if the color at the end of the base of the plant is normal, though, and I'm still a little worried since the bottoms of some of the other leaves still feel a bit soft. Is the best course of action to let it finish drying out, repot it later, and just see how it does from here?

The base of your plant looks normal, and the roots also look okay!

If it were me, I would let it dry out a little more, then repot!…but I’m also impatient so I would repot…

If the roots themselves are not wet and are dry to the touch, you’re okay to repot πŸ€—πŸͺ΄
@kscape Thank you! πŸ™Œ 🌿 I thought I had gotten everything, but was hoping for a second opinion since I don't have the best track record with succulents πŸ˜…
