Always good to see your posts, because you are always so perceptive, and

As pointed out, the plant can not "establish" untill it "strikes" roots
in the soil where it is to grow.  When you recieve a plant that has an
"impressive " root system in a container, It seems hard to fault that. 
Those roots, in the main, however, are incapable of functioning in most
soils.  A "new" and , if you were to compare, different root "structure"
must devlope, in order for the plant to grow in actual soil.
