Untie the knot, slide off the holder
Can't do that on YT

True, was talking about c"h. Only real issue is on 3 day y"t. But then I just leave it in damp paper towel out of fridge in basement. (Cool) just make sure not too wet or lulav will get moldy

I wrap mine in a wet paper towel, then silver foil, then put it in the fridge.
exactly.
My aravos and hadasim are in a holder. So I slide that off and wrap that up.
exactly.
Then the holder gets moldy from the moisture of the papertowel
Keep that part of the paper towel dry
or just wrap the top part and leave the holder exposed.
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

You just pour it into the bottom of the bag or try to spread it around?

Just the right amount of dampness is key
