plants.  (OK, all you folks from down south, I now expect a round of "why do
you bother with those, we throw them away")

perfectly fine in the pond from which he got them.  He says that within just
a couple days, the leaves began to turn white and all growth stopped.

this might be a virus.  Does anyone out there have any other ideas?
