What IS this on my asiatic lilies???
And how do I stop it in its tracks???

They were growing as a flat (2 flats, actually) of potted plants, and looked so HEALTHY!!!

Until I went to get them ready for tomorrow's flea market.
Then I saw this white stuff.
HOW CAN I GET RID OF IT before next Saturday???????Thumb of 2013-06-08/crittergarden/d30031

I wish I could help more but this one is new to me. I did read that certain Asiatic lilies get "cobwebs" on their buds and on the junction between leaf and stem and that this phenomenon is actually normal for particular hybrids (not a disease or insect, just a sign of distant genetics). I really looked at your photo closely and do not see any sign of a creature what-so-ever (great photo btw - super clear). So... perhaps this is one of those hybrids known to get a case of "cobwebs"? Are "the webs" restricted just to those 2 areas (buds and junctions)?

How odd. Yes they are only in those 2 places.
At first I thought it was powdery mildew - but then I looked that up and it doesn't look like that....

Can you link me to your source for that "cobweb" info?
Those were going to be my money makers tomorrow and now they aren't going at all.....
I MUST solve it before next Saturday!

Here are 2 blogs with a really "severe case": http://perennialpassion.blogspot.com/2007/06/tango-lily-fuzz...

http://perennialpassion.blogspot.com/2012/06/please-sit-spel...

Also, I did a generalized search for "white fuzz asiatic lily" and found some discussions. I hope this helps - please let me know what you think

Well, that tango lily sure does look like what I have.
How the heck do I explain that to the casual customers though???
Blinking
I discovered it is called "pubescence".
Now I'm looking that up.
I will be able to make an info sheet, but not in time for tomorrow.....
Seems like I am on the right track though, so THANK YOU.

IF ANYONE ELSE HAS ANY IDEAS PLEASE SHARE ANYWAY!!!
I'm still not certain of this one....

I thought I'd share this info from Leftwood on the Asiatic Lilies thread:

"Botanically speaking, there are more than a dozen different terms describing plant hairs, each with its own meaning.
Pubescence is much tinier, very very short hair surface.
Those on lilies are most accurately described as pilose.
That said, "real" people just say fuzzy, hairy or pubescent. I'm good with that."

I just found this thread. That is very interesting Critter. The plants look very healthy, and I find the pubescents/fuzzy thingy interesting.
What lily is it?
How did your sale go?
