Dear David:  I know from correspondence that if you use a bleach solution
and fail to rinse the plant off afterward, you can get very distorted
flowers and even distorted leaves the following year. Apparently some of
the bleach gets into the plant cells and remains, and acts a sort of
poison. Probably this might also have occurred because the solution was too
strong. Lloyd Z. in Durham NC
