Need: That pic of root bound pepper in Jiffy pellet

Someone posted a picture here of a pepper plant that was started in a jiffy pellet and the netting was not removed before transplant. It was an adult pepper that had most of it's roots still inside the pellet. I really wanted to show someone that pic but, I can't find it no matter what I put in the search. If anyone recalls the name of that thread, can you tell me? I know they thread was probably a year old.

Thank you! I should have put "peat pellet" in the search. I was using "jiffy" and getting nada.

The link to the post comes back as unavailable. Anyone happened to save a copy of this pic? A friend doesn't believe there could be issues with leaving the netting on.

It's Rick's picture so maybe he will re-post it since the other thread has been lost.

But there are plenty of testimonials in various gardening blogs and on seed starting websites about the pellets and the webbing problems if your friend wants to review them.

The newest version even comes with a zipper strip built into the netting so it can easily be stripped off.

I know this is late, but thank you all for your insight and difficulties in using the Jiffy pellets. I had never thought about removing the netting, but I should have.
Thank you!
Judith
