Got plants from Aquadise do i have to remove foam and weights thats on roots

Just what the title says i just got my plants from aquadise and the roots have a foam covering it and weight wrapt around the roots.

The lower half of the stems will rot with the foam on there. I learned the hard way when I left them on for a few days before I did my planting. Get them off as soon as possible.
