    Thank you Geoff.
    Sure, I don't, either. I sounded naive. I was just upset when I posted that message. I came home and saw those spots on petals.. Not very pleasant discovery, you know. I loved the plant, and now I have to get rid of it... etc. All those thoughts and emotions.
    I also bought many plants in the last few years which did not last long. One plant was rotten when I came home 5 hours later after Redland show, so I know exactly what you are talking about. It happens. Thank you for LOL

    I do not think so. There has been a lot of research into many chemical compounds also known as plant chemotherapy which can eliminate plant viral infections. Salicylates and Guanidine orthologs being some of them. In some years I believe we will have effective virucides like we have for many animal viruses or insecticides we have for many insects.
