Thank Ray. Yes, I quickly figured out that the potato would not be a good control method. However, it was a great way to see what little creepy-crawlies were in my plants. I found that going out at night had the best results. I'll probably just throw a slice on my pots whenever cooking potatoes to check for activity.
I don't mean to sound dense, but when you speak of the "dregs from the coffee pot" are you referring to the last bit of coffee or the actual grounds? As the only coffee drinker in my house, I have a single serve brewer, but am not opposed to making a few cups for my orchids : )
Also, would copper tape around the top of the pot be a problem for the plants?
Thanks again, I truly appreciate your knowledge and the science behind the information. By the way, the KelpMax is fabulous!
