: very deep into the soil, kind

Hildaes don't have a very extensive root system and is nothing compared to a revoluta. You shouldn't have any problems at all for depth or anything, but sometimes the main root is si narrow that it is easy to snap it off when moving it. I've even had 7 gallon plants that i was bare rooting to send to someone that after cleaning all the soil off, I had to repot and put back in the nursery because I wasn't comfortable with how it would ship. Gte a good soil ball and it should be just fine.
