How can I get rid of slugs that are destroying my orchids. They eat the new stems that sprout up before they have a chance to get more than 1 inch high.

There's an iron based slug control product called Sluggo. Sprinkle the product on the soil around your orchids. It is harmless to wildlife, pets and people but is very effective against snails and slugs. Best wishes with your eradication project!
