Nice keikis! When you remove the small plants, leave a bit of the stem from the parent with the keiki, just to help with stability. Then soak the whole keiki in water, or even better, a solution of kelp fertilizer (to promote root growth). The roots will become more pliable when thoroughly soaked. You will be able to carefully bend the long roots to circle the inside of your pot. I think of it as "screwing the plant into the pot". Just keep turning the whole plant until you can work the roots into the pot you want to use, then add your medium to fill in the center, which will probably be mostly empty. Good luck!
