I'm just about to replant my entire tank and i'm adding some dwarf hairgrass I just picked up yesterday...

Do I keep it in the pots and the roots will find their own way out?
or
Do I remove the pots and plant them right in the substrate?

Thanks

If you want it to spread and form a carpet, remove it form the pots and pull off all the packing wool. Separate it into small plugs to get the quickest results. Dwarf hairgrass does best with a sandy substrate and high light. Enjoy!

Deff remove it from the rockwool. Take your time and have a bowl of water handy to shake the roots off in. It also helps to have a nice pair of tweezers. So you can be carefull with the delicate roots. When I get DH like that I usually pull the bottom half of the rock wool right off to begin with and then break up the clump into a few sections. It makes it easier to work with. You are going to have to break a few roots and lose a few strands but don't worry it will be fine. When you go to plant it plant it in little bushes of 5-10 hairs.
