    Ok so I can't get round it I'm going to have to do some fragging soon as my xenia is growing like a beast..

    So I've decided it will be cheaper to get some tools off eBay from China

    So what are the essential items would I
    need ..

    I have scalpel/craft knife

    Long tweezers

    Long scissors somewhere

    And have ordered

    A thread leaf cutter thing

    Some forceps

    What other tools will I need ?

    And what advice can you share????

    Dont forget a pack of waterproof plasters for the inevitable fragging of skin (or is that just me :-D )

    PPE is whats missing in my view!

    Palytoxin is not something to be taken lightly, whilst 99% of zoas are safe I would always take precautions -just not worth the risk.

    Gloves and glasses a must.
    Whilst breathing apparatus may be extreme, even a basic dust mask would help stop any squirted juices from getting into your mouth and nose.
