[Aroid-l] viruses in Amorphophallus

  • Subject: [Aroid-l] viruses in Amorphophallus
  • From: Bryan Lampl <blampl1@earthlink.net>

Earlier this year I acquired an Amorphophallus albus and when it opened up I
immediately recognized that the coloration of the leaves were not consistant
and contained lightened patches throughout. I decided that there could be
the possibility of the plant containing a virus.  I have kept it seperate
from my other plants to be safe. The plant went dormant after I returned
from the aroid show and now I am hoping to determine if this is a
contaminated tuber. Is there anyone that could inform me on how one would
test for viral infections in tubers or direct me to a person or facility
that could do the procedure.  The tuber did offset so I can easily offer one
for disection and testing.  I would prefer not to be overcautious and
destroy a healthy tuber.  Thanks for your assistance.
