Re: Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Thanks to everyone for the info.  I've never seen the problem but was just curious about it.

This question is posted on Garden Web at this link:

"I have been frequenting the Hippeastrum forum lately and there is a big scare going around with Tobacco Mosaic Virus. I actually found two in my collection that have it. My question is are there any aroids that are susceptible to this virus? I am especially worried about amorphophallus species. I would burn every hippeastrum I have to protect my amorphs. Thanks for any input."

I've never heard of this virus, can some of you guys and gals fill us in on the details and potential dangers?


Oh, Steve - this is why many arboretums do not allow public access. 
 It is also called "Tomato Mosaic Virus" (ToMV).  There is much
good published info on it.
If in doubt with regard to a plant having an infection - please take it
to the  lab within your County Agent's office.  Unless it is something exotic
they will diagnose for free in most cases.  This is an invaluable service.
A couple of good references:
