    Unfortunately, I think I tend to consider this as you think

    that would be a shame. So sorry.
    Once infected, always infected. Plants do not have antibodies as do animals which can move through the organism to destroy a virus.

    Sorry to hear about your chid, Clint

    Oh, Clint, that is terrible news. I know it must have been so hard for you to destroy such a beautiful plant. I am a big old softy when it comes to anything living, but you made the right decision to protect your other orchids. What a terrible shame.

    Hope you find another that is not virused.

    Cheers,
    BD
