Repot cacti

To protect yourself from the spines when repotting cacti, you can grasp the plants with a pair of barbecue tongs. However, this could be uncomfortable for the cactus if you press down too hard.

With bare hands you risk spades, with gloves you often do not have the necessary feeling.

Simply go with kitchen paper: Depending on the size of the plant, tear off one or two leaves, fold them lengthwise twice and wrap the strip around the cactus. So you can handle it safely and implement it.
