This oak rooted cutting was just removed from a 2 1/4 inch container. The top inch of media was removed carefully to check for root defects such as kinks and "j" roots. No defects were found on this liner. The point where the top-most roots emerge from the trunk will be planted about an inch below the top of the media.
