    It is possible that it has grown into the pot. These roots should only be small feeder roots that will cut easily. If you water it well, then use a long thin strip of metal (like an old window blind slat or a serrated bread knife) you should be able to cut away a good many of these feed roots. Then you may want to ask someone strong to help you pull the plant out. One person can hold the pot while the other (stronger person) should be able to get a good handhold in the soil/roots itself. If the plant has grown into the resin, it is pretty potbound and the rootball should be pretty compact and able to be gripped.
