Of course, there’s also an additional benefit that comes un-potting out plants which is getting to see the hidden elements of a specimen otherwise concealed beneath the soil. Large tap roots, winding root systems, and large tuberous bodies come to light to challenge our perceptions of the plants we’re used to seeing potted up in our nursery and greenhouse.
