Because a lot of succulent plants come with thorns, spikes or sharp-edged leaves, or all of the above it can be difficult to work with them without getting pricked or scratched. This is where having a pair of tongs will definitely be an advantage.
The tongs will allow you to pick your succulent plant up or move your succulent plant from one area to another if you are replanting. Using the tongs will protect you from injury and also protect your plant from being dropped due to you being scratched or pricked.

Tong will also provide you with a longer reach it will help you to remove dead leaves from your succulents without getting hurt or damaging other nearby plants.
