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
So sorry to learn about it! We have to come up with some cost effective and reliable technology for the treatment of viruses!!
I am sorry for your loss, how do you test for viruses?
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.
