What can i do to keep this cactus alive?

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this cactus is rooted or not and how to keep it alive.

I'm not seeing any roots there. Looks like it might be rotted at the bottom. Any soft mushy parts must be cut off. I would let the good part dry for 2 weeks before planting. Make sure you use a good draining mix, and smallish pot, or you'll travel full circle. It will take awhile for it to grow new roots, but it is possible to save it. Good luck.

Yikes! good luck. It might survive. Let it dry out a bit like bailey said and then see what happens!
