Re: [Aroid-l] Virus in Araceae
Yes, a variety and a plant can survive many many years. e.g.
TBV (Tulip Breaking Virus) infected so much tulips in Netherland. Zommerschoon
is the oldest TBV infected variety. In Hortus Bulborum (in Limmen) they keep
this plant for many years now. First it was described about 1620. And today
the tulips are well.

google Zantedeschia virus you will find lots of information. Mosaic
virus seems to be a a well known virus.
I'm not sure if the odd
inflorescence in your photo is from a virus, it is so commonly seen.
Sometimes one inflor. is odd, but all the others on the plant are OK.
Doesn't a virus mean a plant is unhealthy? If a plant has a virus, can
it (the plant) survive through several
Sypthoms: reduced tuber growth, spathe distortion, leaf
mosaic, wavy leaf, rounder leafshape (Z. rehmannii) and increased
offset production. The sympthomes are not allways visible sometimes only one
or two of them on a plant.
Everyone is raving about the
all-new Yahoo! Mail beta.
