Q.Peace lily houseplant

Zone San Antonio, Texas | dcas23 added on August 9, 2016 | Answered

Our cat got to the pot and peed in it and the plant died. All that is left is a 2-3 inch root. The top 1 inch is black. I want to replant this, do you have any suggestions? I would really like for this plant to survive. Thank you.
