I recently pulled down the sheaths on some giant valuable 'Dendrobium speciosum speciosum 'Neil's Choice'
It exposed giant young buds forming and I though 'Beaut giant spikes this spring"
But no, I had forgotten to slug out the pots ,thinking that no slug or snail would touch such large leaves and giant canes.
But I had fogotten about those big fat juicy buds,so guess where the molluscs headed?

I know it was a slug or snail and not a rat or catterpiller as it left a silver trail behind.
Thats what you look for when trying to work out what did the damage.
