A plug is a rooted starter plant with a very little amount of soil. Your plug will ship as it with no pot. Please expect that your plug looks dirt during the shipping process. This is ok because the most important part is the root and plant not the dirt.
The most successful way to grow a plug is to immediately plant into an appropriate size pot and water your plug.
