    Is there anyone else out there who uses a tweezers to pull little weeds out of their CP pots? I know I do. I particularly can't stand to see something growing up out of the crowns of my plants. It really irks me.

    Uuuug, I am a little better now. I used to trim my VFTs of black material constantly. Now I just am anal about all the DOG HAIR that gets in some of my pots. It drives me up the wall, and the thing is that it isn't in just plants that are outside on the deck, it's in EVERYTHING without a lid. Let's put it this way: if I had easy access tweezers, I'd be using them. As it stands, I'm picking up hair with bonzai clippers, usually works, though sometimes I end up just chopping up the hairs, and it's needless to say that I can think of at least one experience where I made an accidental "cutting."

    I use mine for fungus gnat larvae in the seedlings when I see them writhing on the surface. They are all saying "pick me, pick me !!"

    Ummm Est, sounds like you are in my league. Hair or weeds... doesn't matter much. Your actions sound right up there with mine.

    Thanks for my morning "spit the pop in the keyboard". The visual of larvae saying pick me pick me was too funny.

    Yes! I use tweezers to pick out moss and dead insect parts, and a turkey baster to water so don't drip or spill the RO water anywhere but where I want it. I have to force myself NOT to start fussing with the plants every time I get home and see a dead trap on a VFT or something.

    I constantly remind myself that I am more likely to kill the plants by constantly fussing with them!
