Hi Desertgal - sounds to me like you already know what should be done. Yes, yes and yes. There is no reason to keep rotted roots on the plant. If anything it will just potentially lead to spreading to what few you have left - remove them. If you have only a few short roots left you may need to anchor them into the media with something like a upside down "U" or wire? You will want to use a media that doesn't dry out too quick initially - like sphag or coir mix or fine bark - superthrive or some like stimulant would be warranted. Cutting the spike off will definately help the plant. It should last quite awhile in a nice vase - I've had them last several weeks. Good luck - mike
