Hi, been a while since I've been around.
I had a bout with mosaic virus in my collection and had to trash 90% of it, broke my heart, and my spirit and I basically gave up ... lost over 100 ariod species to it.
It's not even recognized as being on the mainland U.S., but in my experience it's widespread and common in many areas.
There's some treatment, but since it's a virus then you really can't eliminate it, only a few plants showed resistance to it, and I hope they reemerge soon, we shall see.

I wonder how prevalent it is in suffer areas, who's seen it but avoided it, who's battled it, who can recognize it and who's completely unfamiliar?

Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!

That so sad Crying

And today i found new leaf on my new Spath also show the same symptoms. It attacked that beautifull variegata. I place it far isolated now. So sad if i must destroy it.. but will be worse if the virus spread to other collection
