Successful. This one had two layers of cardboard. One is shown off to the side. This soil was very sticky so (although there were few roots) there was not much risk of the rootball breaking apart. I will probably continue to use two layers of cardboard under the plant, as a precaution, to give stability when handling the plant.

Hopefully in a month I will be trying all of this again, but with looser soil with more calcium, for hopefully a bigger, healthier plant. I'll also stake it somehow before it reaches full size, or just let the sides of the bag hold the leaves up during transplanting until the plant is better supported.
