Subject: abnormal flowers

Hi Claire,  I have seen abnormal blooms on Spathi`s but generally in
commercially grown (and sprayed?) hybrids.   Have you had them for a long
time, and they have never done tis before???   Are they store-bought or wild
collected species??
The hybrids sometimes produce double spathes, no spathes, double or forked
spadices, all kinds of deformities.   I don`t know if it`s the breeding, OR
the sprays to make them all bloom together, or fungicides or what it may be.

Hope this helps,



Recently we found some abnormal Spathiphyllum flowers in our greenhouse.
Some are smaller then usually; others have a normal size, but lack a
spathe and instead there is a little of white amorph tissue. The same
plant has normal and abnormal flowers. The only thing that we changed
during culture, is fumigation with Bladafume against thrips.
Does someone have a hypothesis for these abnormal flowers?
Thank you,

Claire Piette
