It occurred to me "hardware cloth" might be a US idiom, not used in other English-speaking countries, for woven wire fencing. So I though I'd post a link for people to see what I'm talking about....

Congratulations! You're growing it very well.

Congratulations! It looks great.

Sometimes they just do this. When the roots are about 2" / 5cm long you can snip the keiki off the parent growth. You don't need to be too careful; that growth...

Some American terrestrial orchids begin losing leaves as the inflorescence emerges. Are any of this plant's ancestors like that?

Welcome to the Orchid Board!

Shade cloth would help. If you can't find it, latillas might be more decorative.

You might also put wires over the area and train gourds or squash up there for seasonal cover. If you have access...

I doubt acephate is labeled for use inside a home. It's a powerful nerve toxin. I wouldn't use it within 2-4 weeks of bringing plants into the house.
