    Default Virus?

    Hi!

    I have this Brassia hybrid since 1.5 years. The leaves look like that in the picture. It didnt get sunburn, slowly growing, did not flower. Do you think is it a virus? Should I throw out the plant?
    Thanks for the help!

    Agreed Whether it is a virus or a serious fungal infection it will never recover to be an attractive plant again.
