Spiny houseplants like cactus and euphorbias are awkward to handle. You reach you hand down to move them and … ouch *&?%#!
However, you can borrow a tool from your kitchen to move them readily: simple kitchen tongs!
Just open the tongs and grasp the pot. Then you can move it, turn it or do pretty much anything you want with it while keeping a safe distance.
You can even use the tongs to hold the plant itself when repotting or to grab cuttings to twist them free.
You might even want to hang the tongs from a hook near your prickly plants for easy access next time around.
Sometimes the simplest techniques are the most effective!
