Default Help!

I am in the middle of planting tomatoes, global bucket method. Two plants are in a cardboard like substance and appear as though one is supposed to plant in ground in this container, they already have support.
Should I remove this for the bucket method?

You're probably referring to Peat pots. Remove the pot. They actually take quite some time to decay and it will most likely rootbound your plants, which will stunt your tomato plant.

I agree peat pots/coco coir pots never decay faster than root growth and hinder plants. Its always a safe bet to remove the pot.
