you pushed it too far or it isn't plugging it hard enough(you need more cotton).

You need to push the cotton ball down quickly to prevent that air bubble from forming. As far as being too wet; the cotton is too loose for the test tube.

OK. If u have a spare test tube and some cotton. U can already practice.

U see, everything you want to learn goes with trial and error (and patience). Learn, try, fail, try again. Practice a lot if you fail more than once. Same as everyone else. And you will see that suddenly you can even help others.
