The place of the cut for the remaining in the "hemp" vase is to sprinkle with shredded charcoal or pour it into molten paraffin, but carefully so that it does not fall on the leaves. Such simple procedures are good for preventing infection. The truncated barrel is advised to wrap sphagnum, but paraffin-treated slice should look like.
