Insert the straw without repotting?

Q:Hi. We want to use our plant straws but didn't realize you need to pull the whole plant out of its pot! Any other way to do this?

A:I understand that you prefer not to repot your plants, and that it can sometimes be difficult to lift them out of their pot. Although it's often simpler to place the rope deep into the soil by removing the plant from its pot, there's another method you might consider.

You could gently push the rope down into the soil from the top, using a stick or a skewer, but be cautious not to disturb the roots too much. Also, ensure the rope is moist throughout the straw before you insert it.
