  • and place them back into your container one by one.
  • Using a chopstick or a pencil can help place them by moving the soil under them
  • Then, gently pack additional potting soil around each plant.
  • Make sure to keep the soil covers the roots of the plant
  • Confirm that you have filled in all the spaces between the plants.
  • If you leave air gaps, the roots might dry out and kill the plants.

Step 4-Add the Finishing Touches

  • Gently remove any soil that is covering the leaves and stems of the plants.
  • You can do this with a soft-bristled brush or even by gently blowing on the plants.
