      Oh dear.! I always remove any material around plant roots that I get.. I found out the hard way a long tome ago to very carefully remove anything like that.. I am at a loss as to why they need to do that TBH..:sad:

        I always take those sort off, I didn’t think you were supposed to leave them on.

        I class those like a normal plant pot when potting up and remove.
