Saving a hosta stalk with no roots attached

Is it savable? Will the stalk regrow roots and how can I save it?

The stem of the hosta is actually the part that is underground -- the rhizome. The stem you're looking at is actually the leaf stem -- a part of the leaf -- and hosta can't grow roots from their stems. But the rhizome should send up some new growth soon.
