How long can a bird of paradise survive without soil?

I'm going to divide a bird of paradise plant from a main plant, but I'm planting it in another pot in my home. I will remove it with the roots, will it survive until I can put it in soil tomorrow (about a full day)?

    Just wrap it in some paper towels, and wet it. It should be fine.

    Moisture and coolness will help.

    As long as the roots are kept moist and cool it'll be fine.
