These are some of the things that I am going to be using today. I am going to downsize so I am using a smaller pot, I have a twisty tie to help stabilize the plant. I am going to use a twisty tie on this stake. I am dealing with a tall plant so I want to make sure it is not going to be tipping. I also have scissors and because these are fine roots I just have a regular pair of scissors but if you have thicker roots, you might want to use something a little heavier duty and then I have a pot clip that also stabilizes the plant. Then we have some Styrofoam to put in the bottom of the pot to help drainage and I am going to be using those for the medium grade bark here because it drains well and also lets a lot of air around the roots which is a good thing.
