what should I do with those roots?
Hello, I have a new Violet de Bordeux fig that I planted in a 2-gallon container last year. I live in Zone 6 Philadelphia area.
In June 2010, I buried the container 1/3 deep in ground. Then in Nov 2010, I dug it up, there were many tiny roots that sticking out of the holes on the bottom. Those roots were maybe 10 inches long out of the holes. Well I didn't do anything special last fall. I just put the container in a plastic bag, left the bag open and put it in the garage.
I have not inspect the roots yet, maybe they are dried up now. But the plant shows green on the tip of the branchs.
My question now is what should I do with those roots? I am going to move this plant to a bigger container (maybe 10-gallon). Should I use a pair of scissors to cut off those roots that sticking out of the bottom holes? or should I just leave them as they are?
