As far as clusia installation tips, you must open a hole as big as the pots depending on pot size, whether a 7 gallon, 15 gallon, 25 gallon or 3 gallon pot you must open a hole big enough to fit the entire pot then you must compact the soil around it in order to make sure the roots catch on to the soil without leaving any damaging air pockets. Your clusia pots will have to fit entirely into the hole in order to cover with dirt well above the root ball. No fertilizer or new soil is needed for installation but it won’t hurt if you desire to go the extra step.
