Replace that sinful plant with something that doesn’t sting. If you still admire the cactus plant for its geometric beauty, then take a look at a votive equivalent. These cactus candles look like your favorite varieties of cactus without hurting those lovely hands of yours. Even the ‘soil’ is wax. Each candle burns anywhere from 4-6 hours and is sure to relieve your gardener’s stress.
While this is classified as a gift, why don’t you gift this to yourself and hand over those painful cactus plants to someone who’s been deserving some bittersweet karma?
