    If I were a bug I should be frightened by those names ! But on a slightly more serious note, one of my favourite orchid nurseries, a firm in Belgium, tell me they don't spray anything as a routine. I asked why not , and ( it is a family firm) the answer was that - hey, we work in that greenhouse every day - what do you think it would do to our health if we were breathing even traces of those things all day ? And their culture is superb. Every plant clean and healthy.

    So what would you do if you found an infected ailing plant, sez I ? The answer was that they have an incinerator in their garden for their (outside garden) rubbish - it would go in there I think.They would not attempt to cure diseases - just get rid of them completely with the infected plant.

    I do recognise that buying plants from multiple sources creates the risk of importing something nasty. The nursery I am thinking of raise all their own plants from their own seed. When they want to add new plants to their list, they go in a separate quarantine house for some months, until they are sure they are clean, before being introduced into their stud plant section. Not a possibility for amateurs I suppose , but it does encourage me to be ruthless in my own collection.

    I hadn't thought of it that way. But then, mine really aren't sprayed when they are indoors. And no one will stay around when I spray since it stinks so bad. lol Since mine are in the open air I don't worry as much about the fumes. I also am careful with washing my hands and such. Lately when a plant reaches a certain point I toss them out. I totally understand their thinking. Sometimes it's the only way.
