Dyckia reitzii rubra

What to wear to protect from having its flowers  randomly pollinated?
(Birds, honey eaters, can travel miles and the pots weight more than  40 kilograms each! Also the plant would  suffer from the dislodging, sun exposing and so on and also the seed buds would open before I get there to pick up the seeds.
I think a frame made of chicken wire or plastic mesh or a perforated  plastic tube wrapped in thin half woman silk stocking tied  on its base with an elastic band... I'll perform the pollination myself.)

...or maybe a codom would better fit....
