Most recent answer: 04/10/2016
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.

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.
