Q:
Can I block Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5 GHz) waves in a small area, i.e. around a plant, using a simple solution, like a Faraday cage, instead of a complicated method like insulating the whole room?Thank you.

A:

Sure.   Make sure the sure the plant is completely surrounded and there are no holes or spaces in the covering that are much larger than the wave length, about 6 cm for a 5 Ghz wave.  Larger holes will let the radiation leak through.
