    Yeah, those roots don't look good. Given what they were in before I'd say the problem was more the fertiliser than an overwatering issue.

    I expect he's talking about root rot, which happens if the plant is put in a pot or soil with inadequate drainage. As you might expect from the name, the roots rot and then the plant dies.

    DO NOT give up on the alata, there was green and thereby you have a chance to root it like a cutting.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    It still has some roots, so don't try to root it like a cutting in water, that will probably kill it. I would treat it like a cutting that I'm trying to root in media. Bury the roots in a sphagnum based mix, keep moist but not wet, keep the temperature warm and humidity high, and you should expect to see some new growth within a month or two if you're lucky. Don't give up on it unless the entire thing turns black and mushy and rots.
