    if the soil is nice and dry and you can gently squeeze the containers, it will compact the dirt and allow you to pull out a whole clod of dirt shaped like the container (kind of depending on what kind of soil you used, how big the pot is, and how big the plant is). if some does fall away it's no big deal. just try not to touch any roots

    then after transplanting, give them lots of water and thoroughly water all the dirt so there's no dry spots. otherwise roots won't be able to grow and thrive utilizing the whole pot with a bunch of dry spots. this will also reduce the risk of shock.
