A large piece of my aloe plant fell off the main plant. Can I root it or do I just plant it? I don't think I can put it in water to root, right? HELP! It is a houseplant and broke off big main plant with no roots.

You can try, but it will most likely rot. The most successful method of aloe plant propagation is from offsets or “pups” (which have complete root systems attached).
With your cutting, let it heal (by letting it dry and callous), then stick it in moist soil.
