Metaldehyde doesn't seem to do much to bush snails. They aren't attracted to the bait part. That's what makes them so pesky - they don't behave like their larger cousins. I don't have a lot of...

Those spots on the lateral sepals makes me think there is some Phal. stuartiana in there as well, which would also contribute to the mottled leaves. Any guess on a NOID will be a guess, but this is...

Flower should be OK. I assume that you removed and "dispatched' the one you found. Just be on the lookout, especially right after watering. Let it bloom, then repot when it's done.

When you stake, make sure that the stake is long enough so that you can support it up to the point where it starts to curve downward. I had the experience with an Oncidium. that had a 4-ft spike,...
