after getting a plant in the mail, what do you do to plant it in the tank?  Leave it in the plant pot?  Remove the plant and put the plant and the wool in the substrate?  Remove the wool and plant just the plant?

I have left the plants in the pots and put the pots in the substrate.  Would like to know because amazon swords all seem to melt away.  They turn yellowish, then all the color goes like the plant is a ghost.  I use easy greenEasy iron and root tabs outside the pots but right next to them.  LED lighted cover. 

Do you have a video on how to plant your plants?

take it out of the pot and remove as much wool as you can, plant in the substrate and use root tabs right at the roots
