Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga. I am a professional gardener and today I am representing We are going to be talking about submerging the plants in water. Basically what this is, is preparing the plant for its new home. Welcome to your new place! Basically what we do is get your plant; this particular one is in 1 gallon and what we are going to do is try to remove it from the gallon, so we are going to apply pressure to the container. There we go; just rotate it slowly, pull it out gently, let’s not damage the plant. There we go. That’s a pretty baby. What we are doing now is we need to analyze the soil. Is the soil dry? This particular one has plenty of moisture. We don’t need to submerge it in water. In the event that you have run across a plant that needs to be submerged in water this is what we have to do. Get a hold of the little bucket, add some water and I would say about half-way should do it. There we go. Insert your plant. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then you will be ready to be replanted and this is how to submerge a plant in water and it is ready for planting.
