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?

Mmmmmmm.......my horticultural classification ......think I'm probably one of those low growing, suckering green jobbies that gets everywhere, and is almost impossible to get rid of

But apart from that, I really, really love gardening - does that count for anything?
