Bare-root conditions for shipping

Sending plants bare-root includes the removal of growing medium as much as possible without harming the plant, so in many cases plants will have a seed starting plug at their base. Most cacti are grown from seed in Wonder Soil and this will leave a coconut bark formation at the base of the plant that can not be removed. However, plants started from seed in our own growing medium will have the medium shake free from the base of the plant. The photo shows 2 plants grown from seeds in different growing medium. The plant on the right was started in Wonder Soil and this plug can not be removed without harming the cactus plant.
