Cat ate my orchid! Will Bitter Apple hurt orchids?

michigoose(Z5OH)January 1, 2013

Cats will sometimes develop a taste for orchids. Bitter Apple, a spray readily available at pet stores may be sprayed on the orchids without hurting the orchids. The spray must be periodically re-applied, however. Other cat lovers who also grow orchids swear by providing kitty with a pot of grass for their own so they leave the orchids alone.
