I would plant it with the shoot in tact - it will soon green up when exposed to the light.  Its a good sign that its alive and kicking.  Be careful with it though, as the shoot might be a bit delicate and you don't want the knock it off.  What type of plant is it ?  That will be a clue as to whether it will send up more shoots, or whether this is likely to be the only one.

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?
