To take the plant out of the pot lightly squeeze the side of the pot to loosen the soil. Next, while supporting the plant, turn the pot upside down and gently pull the plant out of the pot. If the plant will not come out you can tap the rim of the pot on a hard surface to help loosen it. Occasionally plants can become a little root bound in pots as they grow to fill the space they are in. If your plants roots appear to be like this, you can gently tease them out. This encourages the roots to grow into the surrounding soil, rather than continuing to grow in a tight ball or in the shape of the pot.
