A root went through the paper. Double the paper and triple the plastic!

I should plant up to six plants per bag then thin down. (At least two per bag?) This bag had three plants. Down to 2 now. One was not a contender so it got pulled already. I'm doing this both because its economical but also I couldnt think of any other way to transplant such a large root ball without damage. I will pull the plastic away and out from under. Then fill dirt around. Then pull the outer paper up out of the ground and anything not already rotten from the inner paper bag.

The roots should develop naturally enough. No roots should be damaged which would be great. The year I have zero transplant shock might be the year I grow a real big one?
